"This is a yummy recipe and great for those nights when you do not want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen! This is one of my husband's favorites - I got the recipe from my Grandma Sadie, an Australian. Her mother made this for her when she was growing up in Wauchope, NSW!" — LAWGODESSS

lean ground beef

Italian bread, cut in half lengthwise
Since putting this recipe on here, I have become a vegetarian. And since I loved this recipe, I came up with a meatless way to eat it. Simply take a package of the Morningstar crumbled soymeat (defrosted), and add a bit more ketchup and evap milk to make it a sticky precooked consistency . I then zapped it with some Montreal steak seasoning in addition to the rest of the ingredients and slathered in cheese. Still yummy. THX
Followed the ingredient list except for the cornflake crumbs...didn't have any, so used Ritz cracker crumbs as I do for my meatloaf, and I added shredded cheese to the mix. Changed up the cooking method a bit for an experiment. Used about 6 small Italian hoagie buns, split. Spread the meat mixture about a 1/2 inch thick on one side and then put the top back on. I then wrapped each individually in foil and baked 30 minutes in the 375* oven. To serve, I cut each in half. Worked out faily well this way and kept the bun from getting too crunchy. My son liked them very much, but my husband and I thought they we just ok...just seemed to be lacking *something* for me, and my husband didn't like the soggy bread bits. My try again sometime.
The flavor was good, but like others said, I cooked the meat first. Very easy and will make again!!
We loved these cheeseburgers! The crisp bread was out of the ordinary, but really good. I'm a picky eater, so I loved the meat and cheese filling, but I'm sure it would be tasty with extras like peppers, mushrooms, etc.
I added an egg and shredded cheddar to this. YUMMY!! Next time I will stuff a can of mushrooms in there too!
Made this the other night, all I did was swap the american cheese with chedder chedder and it was great. The bread didnt get to hard or soggy.
A pretty decent recipe... I used the suggestion of another reviewer and added an egg into the meat mix, and was pretty satisfied. That said, next time I'm going to try adding in some minced garlic and perhaps some more Worcestershire sauce. Worth trying, but expect to add your own tweaks to perfect it.
The filling was good, but the bread crust got so crisp it was nearly impossible to bite through. If I make this again, I will take another reviewer's tip and brown the meat first and bake only for a short time.
