Bubbles For Supper

Yuck, right? Ha Ha. Well, I'm not talking about the soapy ones. Thank goodness! But have you seen the big trend for "bubble up" casseroles all over the blogosphere? The concept is quite simple. You use canned biscuits to top a dish of goodness, and the whole thing "bubbles up" while it cooks.

I've been wanting to try this concept for a while now, but I wanted just the right recipe to be our first. I had a few ideas on what I wanted to do, and then my little man became my inspiration. He informed me he was hungry for my Chili Dog Casserole, and that's when it hit me. I could take the same flavors, tweak them a bit, and have our first bubble up experience.

With it being our first week of school, I wanted to give Monkey a fun, yummy "last night of summer vacation" supper that he would gobble down...and this did not disappoint!

If your little ones (or big ones too) enjoy chili dogs, and even better, cheesy chili dogs, they are going to flip for this as much as we did! All the same flavors, in an easy to make, quick, weeknight meal! Add a salad or some fresh fruit on the side and dinner is done!

I'm starting to think about all the different bubble up creations there are yet to be made! I guess I'm on a mission now! 

Cheesy Chili Dog Bubble Up Bake
1 (8 ct.) can refrigerated jumbo biscuits
2 TBS butter, melted
1 tsp. onion powder
1 tsp. dried parsley
8 hot dogs, cut into 1/4ths
2 (15 oz.) cans chili with beans
1 small white onion, finely chopped
2 c. finely shredded cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375. Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick spray. Pour chili into bottom of dish. Place hot dogs in chili. Stir gently. Sprinkle with onion and top with cheese. In a medium bowl combine melted butter, onion powder and parsley. Cut each biscuit into 4 pieces. Dip each piece into butter mixture, coating thoroughly. Top casserole with biscuits, leaving a little space between each piece. Bake for 25 minutes until browned. *NOTE* The chopped onion is not going to be cooked all the way. It will still be crisp. We like this because we also have fresh diced onion on our chili dogs.
