This is from The Complete Encyclopedia of Vegetables and Vegetarian Cooking by Roz Denny and Christine Ingram. The original title is cowboy hot pot, but I am making a few changes to lighten it up so I can't help but see it as a cowGIRL's healthy choice LOL.I made this with smoked cheddar instead of gouda, and ketchup instead of tomato paste as I was out. For a one-dish meal (and for true cowgirl style) make this in a large cast iron skillet (that's "eye-urn" for all you city slickers ;) )

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. Fry the onion, pepper, and sweet potato gently in oil until softened but not browned (you could probably steam them as well and omit the oil altogether!).
  3. Add the green beans, baked beans, corn with liquid, tomato paste, and seasoned salt. Bring to a boil and simmer 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer the vegetable mixture to a shallow ovenproof dish and scatter the cubed cheese on top.
  5. Cover the vegetable and cheese mixture with the sliced potatoes. Brush with butter and season with salt and pepper.
  6. Bake 30-40 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked and golden brown on top.

I made recipe as posted except I premade the recipe, and took it to the Notre Dame tailgating party yesterday, and I heated it up in my friend RV. Great tasting filling recipe here, very enjoyable on a cool cloudy damp day, will make again. Made for PRMR tag.

Delicious! Made as directed for a wonderful vegetarian dinner. I thought this would also be wonderful with hot dogs and brown bread w/apple crisp for dessert -- next time we will try it that way, but wonderful just the way it was. Thanks for sharing!
