FRENCH CHEESEBURGER LOAF

 

  • Cooking Time: 25 minutes
  • Servings: 6 servings
  • Preparation Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 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 reduced-fat process American cheese product
  • 1 egg white, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  • In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the flour, mustard and ketchup; set aside.
  • Unroll dough starting at the seam. Pat into a 14-in. x 12-in. 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.

Notes

Once you prepare this impressive-looking yet simple-to-make sandwich you'll probably never look at refrigerated bread dough the same. It's just so easy!
