Cowboy Casserole

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen

How about a new recipe for 2021? Not that changing the calendar does anything magical and makes the awful things of 2020 go away, but it is a convenient time to start or explore new things. This here recipe is not difficult and is mighty tasty.

If you want to try an easy new recipe at the beginning of 2021, this version of Cowboy Casserole may be just what you want.

It was given to me by Charlene Osborne. I'm giving her credit because, like other recipes, people start with the basic instructions and then make adjustments as they see fit. She made it hers. That's what you'll do. 

I understand that the version Charlene encountered at first was not exactly something to send a telegram home about.

The measurements are in the US Customary System. Y'all will have to do conversions your ownselves if you want things in millimetrics.

Product names listed are because she uses them, not because either of us is being paid to promote them. You savvy that, Sam?

 

Prep time is about 15 minutes, then it bakes for 25-30 minutes.

Cowboy Casserole Ingredients:

• 1 pound of hamburger (or ground turkey burger, or bison burger)
• 28-ounce Bush's barbecue baked beans
• 1/4 cup honey barbecue sauce or regular sauce if preferred (big name or store brand, whatever)
• 1 8-oz package fresh mushroom, about 2 cups (or your preference)
• 1/2 yellow onion (or your preference)
• 8 ounce package of shredded cheese (Colby-Monterey Jack, pizza blend, or similar)
• 1 tube of rolls (8-count), Grands by Pillsbury preferred


Instructions:

• Preheat oven at 350
• Slice or chop the mushroom and onion, then sauté
• Pan-fry the burger until brown, drain
• Mix burger, beans, sauce, mushrooms, onion in 9x9 square baking dish
• Do layers: layer of the mixture, then shredded cheese on top mixture with shredded cheese on top
• Repeat layers
• Split the biscuits the long way, spread out on top, do not overlap
• You can sprinkle some garlic and onion powders on top
• Bake for 25-30 minutes — you don't want under-cooked dough, but careful not to burn it
• Take pictures and share on social media because that's why social media exists

Unless you're serving a big group, you'll have a bit left over. That's fine, cover the now-cooled dish with plastic wrap and store it in the icebox. Reheating works well in microwave-safe bowls. You'll thank me later.

She wants it!

Obey the Consensus Because Experts are Smarter than You

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen We have seen numerous example of how people are unwilling, even unable, to think rationally and challenge assertions. Many are willing to follow what "scientists say", but this is often a cessation of thought. Worse is appealing to the majority — the so-called consensus . Original image: Unsplash / Jo-Anne McArthur , modified at Big Huge Labs Let's mount up and ride to the top of yonder hill and get the bigger picture. Dr. Michael Crichton had some excellent statements about how science and consensus are mutually exclusive . While there is a consensus on many things, those things are not necessarily ironclad facts. Also, the consensus is often wrong and even biased: Geocentrism (the earth stands still while the sun, moon and stars orbit it) was the prevalent view for a mighty long time Things burned because they had phlogiston  in them Ignaz Semmelweis determined that doctors should wash their hands, but was ridiculed Piltdown Man fooled the scie

Shining the Light on a Darwinist Deceiver

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen This is part 2 of Conspiracy Theories, Creation, and Reason , but takes a different approach. We saw how a number of factors contribute to the act of purveying conspiracy theories, and how there are several reasons why people believe them. Then there is the alleged creation science conspiracy. Credit: Unsplash / Steve Johnson We have three articles to consider, two of which are from the same ministry. Naturally there will be some overlap, but they each offer material that comprise a larger picture. There was a time when if someone had a question about, say, that 2002 email saying the teddy bear icon in Windows was really a virus. They could check Snopes and find out that it was a hoax , and they could search for urban legends. Unfortunately, they became heavily involved in promoting leftist political views with "fact checking", and their credibility became questionable. Snopes even attacked the parody site Babylon Bee (one of whose slogans is " fa

Silencing President Trump and Me

by Cowboy Bob Sorensen This article is going to cover a few shocking points that should be of concern to people who value free speech. Donald Trump and I are best buddies — yeah, like he knows that I even exist. But we do have a few things in common regarding censorship.
