Make dinner into fun time with this Cheeseburger Loaf. Seasoned ground beef in tomato sauce and smothered in cheese fills crusty French bread. To make it a meal, serve with this Zesty Potato Soup (I substituted cheddar for the Velveeta and it was so good).
1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted (use pizza sauce if you prefer a less sweet filling)
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 loaf (1 pound) unsliced French bread
1 tablespoon butter, softened
8 ounces cheddar cheese, sliced
1. In a large saucepan, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Drain then add soup, garlic salt, salt and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes.
2. Meanwhile, slice the top third off the loaf of bread. Hollow out bottom half of loaf, leaving a 3/4-inch shell (save the removed bread for another use). Spread butter on cut side of bread. Place loaf on an ungreased baking sheet and broil 4-inches from the heat until lightly browned. (Watch carefully to avoid the bread burning).
3. Spoon beef mixture into shell and arrange cheese slices on top. Broil 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Replace bread top.
