This recipe was so quick and easy and tasted delicious all at the same time! I got it ready during naps and threw it in the oven when it was almost supper time. A quick side of veggies and it was a great weeknight meal for our family!
French Cheeseburger Loaf
(recipe found in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking)
3/4 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1 small green pepper, chopped
2 garlic, cloves, minced
2 tablespoons all purpose flour
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated crusty french loaf
4 slices cheese
1 egg white, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese
In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion, pepper and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Stir in the flour, mustard and ketchup; set aside.
Unroll dough starting at the seam. Pat into a 14x12 inch rectangle. Spoon meat mixture lengthwise down the center of the dough; top with cheese slices. Bring long sides of dough to the center over filling; pinch seams to seal. Place seam side down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush with egg white. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese. With a sharp knife cut diagonal slits in top of loaf. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
