Cheesy BBQ Beef & Oven Fries
This family-pleasing main dish is easy enough for kids to make—with a little adult supervision.
4 small baking potatoes (about 1 1/4 pounds), cut lengthwise into 1/2-inch wide wedges
1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 red or green bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 cup loose-pack frozen corn kernels
1 cup prepared barbecue sauce
1 cup shredded cheddar or colby-Jack cheese
- Preheat oven to 450°F (230°C).
- Spread potatoes in 15x10x1-inch baking pan; spray lightly with nonstick cooking spray; sprinkle with salt. Bake 25 to 30 minutes or until potatoes are tender and lightly browned.
- Meanwhile, brown ground beef with bell pepper in large nonstick skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes until beef is no longer pink, breaking up into small crumbles. Pour off drippings. Stir in corn and barbecue sauce, heat through.
- Serve beef mixture over potatoes. Sprinkle with cheese.
Makes 4 servings.
