Roast Beef Hot Shots

Whenever I mention roast beef hot shots, depending on who I am talking to, I sometimes get a strange look.  I usually then say, “You know, Beef Manhattans.”  Sometimes that clears it up, other times I have to describe the deliciousness of roast beef hot shots to which the usual response is “Those sound delicious.”  (Don’t even get my started about “Cincinnati-style spaghetti.”)  So, my friends near and far… here is the recipe for roast beef hot shots for your dining pleasure.

Roast Beef Hot Shots

6 slices white bread

2 jars brown beef gravy

1 medium can beef

3 cups mashed potatoes, prepared

1 Tablespoon black pepper

2 teaspoons garlic salt

Drain juices from beef can.  Spoon beef into large non-stick skillet over medium-low heat.  Break beef pieces into smaller, bite-sized pieces as needed.  Allow beef to heat for 4-5 minutes.  Add both jars of gravy to skillet, stirring to combine with beef.  Season with black pepper and garlic salt; stir to combine.  Reduce heat to low.  Allow beef and gravy mixture to simmer for another 5-6 minutes.  Remove from heat.  Top one slice of bread with 1/2 cup mashed potatoes, spreading to edges of bread.  Top mashed potatoes with 1/6 of meat and gravy mixture.  Allow gravy to soak into bread for 2-3 minutes prior to serving.

*These can also be made using chicken or turkey, swapping in the appropriate gravy for the meat being used. *
