Expert Tips

As well as barbecue beef, cooked barbeque chicken and barbecue pork can be used in this recipe if you’d like to try something different.

This casserole can easily be cut into squares; serve it with a spatula rather than with a spoon.

The mashed potatoes can be made ahead and refrigerated until you’re ready to make dinner.
