Steaks Béarnaise Over Potato Cakes


2 cups prepared sour cream and chive mashed potatoes

1/3 cup cooked bacon pieces

1/3 cup crumbled blue cheese

2 tablespoons + 1/2 cup all purpose flour

1 large egg (or 1/4 cup egg substitute)

1 1/2 lb grilling steaks (NY-strip, skirt, or ribeye)

1/2 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided

3 tablespoons canola oil, divided

1 bag fresh spinach (8-10 oz)

1 (10-oz) container roasted garlic cooking crème, divided

2 tablespoons béarnaise sauce mix


1. Combine potatoes, bacon, cheese, 2 tablespoons flour (or more, if potatoes too soft), and egg until blended. Form into six patties. Place 1/2 cup flour on plate; coat both sides of patties with flour. Set aside.

2. Preheat large sauté pan on medium-high 2-3 minutes. Season steaks with pepper and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Place 1 tablespoon oil in pan, then add steaks; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until 145°F (for medium-rare). Remove steaks from pan; cover to keep warm.

3. Reduce heat to medium. Place remaining 2 tablespoons oil in pan, then add 3 patties; cook 2-3 minutes on each side or until golden. Transfer to paper towels to drain; cover to keep warm. Repeat with remaining 3 patties.

4. Place spinach in large microwave-safe bowl and cover; microwave on HIGH 4-5 minutes or until tender. Slice steak thinly across grain.

5. Combine 1/2 cup cooking crème and béarnaise sauce mix in microwave-safe bowl; microwave on HIGH 1 minute, stirring often, or until hot.

6. Drain spinach, if needed; stir in remaining cooking crème and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Divide spinach over potato cakes, top with steak, and drizzle with sauce. Serve.
