Recipe of the Week – Cheddar Beef Stew Bake

Recipe of the Week – Cheddar Beef Stew Bake

Batter-Up Beef Pie

Cheddar Beef Stew Bake

1/4 c. butter
1 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 cup (4 0z) grated cheddar cheese
1 tbs. instant minced onion
1 tbs. sugar
1 1/2 c. milk
1 1/2 lb. can Dinty Moore Beef Stew
Met butter in the bottom of an 8″ square pan.  Combine remaining ingredients except beef stew in a mixing bowl.  Stir until blended.  Pour over melted butter.  Pour beef stew over batter.  Do NOT stir.  Bake at 350 degrees for 60 minutes.  
I love the browned edges of the batter when baked.  It’s so crusty and cheesy!

Recipe of the Week – Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Onions

    mashed-sweet-potatoes-with-caramelized-onions-1-R125363-l

Mashed Sweet Potatoes with Caramelized Onions

½ cup margarine
2 lbs. yellow onions, thinly sliced
4 lbs. sweet potatoes, peeled & cubed
1/2 cup milk
1/4 tsp. salt and pepper
1/3 c. sour cream

To caramelize the onions, in a large skillet heat ¼ c. of the margarine.  Add onions and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown.  Season with salt and pepper.  Remove from heat and set aside.  Cook the potatoes in a large pot, covered in lightly salted boiling water for 12 minutes or until tender; drain.  Add the remaining ¼ c. margarine to the pot and mash until smooth.  Stir in milk and sour cream and salt and pepper to taste.  Stir in caramelized onions, reserving a few to garnish.  Cook and stir over low heat until heated through.  Transfer to serving dish and top with reserved onions.

Make ahead:  Prepare potatoes through step 3 stirring into caramelized onions, but do not heat through.  Transfer to a 2 ½-3 quart casserole.  Cover and chill up to 24 hours.  Before serving, bake in a 325 oven for 55-60 minutes or until heated through.

This recipe was given to me by a gal from Youth Haven Ranch here at Picacho Peak, AZ.
