Today I’ve got two recipes for you – BBQ Beef and Bean Pot Pie and Double Chocolate Pretzel Brownies.
Dinner + Dessert!
The best family times and conversations happen around the table, so why not keep everyone there longer by adding dessert too. I guarantee they’ll hang out in the kitchen when they smell these brownies baking.
These recipes couldn’t be easier. They use common pantry ingredients and Betty Crocker and Bisquick mixes. I love dinners that come together quick, but give us a chance to connect as a family.
One of our favorite things to do is play games after dinner. Brownies and games makes a plain weeknight a whole lot better.
Let’s get dinner on the table, starting with the BBQ Beef and Bean Pot Pie. Here’s what you’ll need to make this easy meal:
This is such a simple idea and we all loved it. There was nothing left in the pan!
BBQ Beef and Bean Pot Pie
- 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1 lb. ground beef
- 1 can kidney beans
- 1 cup barbecue sauce
- 1 cup Bisquick Baking Mix
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1 egg
- In a skillet, brown the onion and ground beef together until beef is cooked through.
- Drain the grease and rinse meat under hot water. Return to the skillet.
- Stir in kidney beans and barbecue sauce.
- Pour into greased 2 quart casserole dish.
- In a bowl, stir together the Bisquick, milk and egg until well combined.
- Pour batter over meat.
- Bake 400 degrees, uncovered for 30 minutes.
Now for the Double Chocolate Pretzel Brownies! This is a good way to use up the broken pretzel pieces in the bottom of the bag. But don’t feel bad to break a few pretzels on purpose. It’s all for a good cause!
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 Betty Crocker Brownie Mix
- Oil, water and egg as listed on back of the box
- ½ cup broken pretzel pieces
- ½ cup chocolate chips
- In a large bowl, stir brownie mix, oil, water and egg together as directed on back of the box.
- Stir pretzel pieces and chocolate chips into batter.
- Pour into greased pan or a foil lined pan and bake according to the directions on the box.
Of course, we couldn’t wait until they cooled to cut them! The pretzels added a great crunch and burst of salt that was so good with the chocolate.
