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

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°. 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.
