For cold weather comfort food, meat and potatoes usually satisfy all my cravings. The classic baked potato is always welcome but, let's face it, it needs some help. We can slather it with butter and sour cream but, this recipe covers those potatoes with creamy, cheesy ground beef.
The cheesy bechamel sauce could be the start of a great mac and cheese or even a cheesy broccoli topping. But I added some savory Worcestershire sauce and, my secret flavor weapon, mustard. Maille's Dijon Originale is basically my "house" mustard and it is a flavor bomb. It lifts up the flavors in this sauce and gives it that "hmm, what is that great savory flavor" thing.
I browned some ground beef and caramelized an onion, mixed it in with the sauce and slathered it all over the baked potato. An easy comfort dinner for one or a crowd. Oh, and if you grew up being told to wrap your potatoes in foil before baking, stop that right now. Wash them, prick some holes with a knife or the tines of a fork and put them on the oven rack to cook. The inside will be tender and the skin will be crispy and delicious. Enjoy!
