This is a recipe from Jyl Steinback's "Supermarket Gourmet Cookbook" that I received from Studentchef in the Spring 2009 Cookbook Swap. It is a quick and easy appetizer and kid-friendly snack. you can substitute ground turkey for the ground beef for lower fat or texturized vegetable protein for a vegetarian alternative.

these were quite good. i cheated and used a bag of frozen fries, cooked them through, then added the bbq beef and cheese...but, wow, the result was...devoured :-)

Had these for lunch today, what a treat! Very easy and flavorful. Just a word or warning, though: don't use a spice blend that had dehydrated onions in it. They sort of overpowered the other lovely tastes going on. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
