Barbecue Baked Potatoes

Baked potatoes are such an easy (cheap!) meal. Top them with a little meat and drizzle with barbecue sauce to make a delicious meal. I served these with soaked pinto beans and steamed broccoli.

Bake enough red-skin potatoes for your family (bake extras and use them for hash-browns!).

Brown 1 pound of hamburger meat (or use leftover brisket, leftover cooked chicken, sausage...).

Whip up a batch of Carolina Honey BBQ Sauce from

1 cup ketchup
1 cup apple cider vinegar
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

Combine all ingredients in a saucepan over medium/high heat.
Whisk until smooth.
Bring mixture to a boil, reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 30 minutes or until mixture thickens.
Remove from heat and serve.

Split your potato open, add butter, salt and pepper to taste. Top with some meat and barbecue sauce and sprinkle with raw cheddar cheese. Serve soaked pinto beans and steamed broccoli alongside. Enjoy!
