I love watching cooking shows. I remember watching them with my mom when I was a kid, and now I watch them with my own child. I love getting new ideas and finding inspiration in fresh ingredients. Last week one of my favorite chefs had a special on barbeque dishes and suddenly I couldn't shake the craving for tangy, spicy barbeque food. I ended up making this recipe and was very happy with the finger-licking results. Take a look at how to make this delish barbeque beef and potato bake:
1 package (7.2 ounces) Betty Crocker® roasted garlic mashed potatoes
2 cups hot water
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 container (18 or 20 ounces) refrigerated original barbecue sauce with shredded beef
1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese (6 ounces)
1 cup (from 2.8-ounce can) French-fried onions
- Heat oven to 350°F. Spray rectangular baking dish, 11x7x1 1/2 inches, with cooking spray.
- Make potatoes as directed on package for 8 servings, using 2 pouches Potatoes and Seasoning, hot water, milk and butter. Spread half of the potatoes over bottom of baking dish. Layer with beef, 1 cup of the cheese and remaining potatoes.
- Cover with aluminum foil and bake about 30 minutes or until hot. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Sprinkle onions around edges of baking dish. Bake uncovered 3 to 4 minutes longer or until cheese is melted and onions are brown.
Note: If you don't have beef on hand, you can always substitute chicken or pork.
