Cowboy Meatloaf and Potato Casserole

Wow, am I behind in blogging! Sorry, but life has been really at me lately! Lots of issues to work through…ugh…
However, I thought I would share a recipe with you all today that we tried last night. I found it on…yep…you guessed it…Pinterest ūüôā
It’s called Cowboy Meatloaf and Potato Casserole and Pinterest got it from over at Simmer for 10.
It was delish!

Casserole

1 pckg of steam n’ mash potatoes
1 lb ground beef
3/4 c onion, finely chopped
1/3 c Italian bread crumbs
1/4 c Sweet Baby Rays original bbq sauce
1 egg lightly beaten
2 tsp chili powder
3/4 tsp salt
2/3 c evaporated milk
1 tbsp butter
1 c crumbled bacon (I used real bacon bits)
1/3 cup crispy fried onions, crumbled
2/3 c shredded Mexican blend cheese

Preheat the oven to 375¬į. Coat a 9×9 baking dish with nonstick spray. ¬†In a bowl, combine the beef, onion, breadcrumbs, bbq sauce, egg, chili powder and salt until mixed well. ¬†Press into the bottom of the baking dish.

Bake uncovered for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through. ¬†Pour of the excess fat. ¬†Adjust the oven to broil and place oven rack 6-8″ from heat source.

Meanwhile, microwave the potatoes according to package instructions. In a large bowl, mix together potatoes, butter and evaporated milk with a mixer until smooth.  Stir in bacon and fried onions.  Spread evenly on top of beef mixtures and sprinkle with cheese.

Broil for about 5 minutes until the cheese is lightly browned.

This serves about 6 people.  Delicious.
