Sandwich Filling

Jim Cyberwolf Gaylord 2

"This is a delicious filling that is put onto hamburger (or hot dog) rolls and baked in the oven. Fantastic for a cold weekend day when the kids need a good lunch. This recipe came from my mother. It has been one of my favorite recipes for over 30 years."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Cook and stir ground beef in a large skillet until well browned, about 10 minutes; drain fat. Place cooked beef in a large bowl. Stir in tomato sauce, onion, black olives, pimentos, mushrooms, Cheddar cheese, chili powder, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Spoon sandwich filling on hamburger bun bottoms, spreading to the edges. Filling should be approximately 1/2" thick in the center of the sandwich.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges start to bubble, 5-10 minutes. Turn oven to Broil and continue to cook until heated through, about 3 minutes.



Mmm, mmm, good. I didn't have the pimentos, but I did have a can of red kidney beans, so I used that instead. I also added 2 finely chopped garlic cloves along with 1/2 a tsp of sugar and this ...

May not be much to look at, but they are absolutely delicious!

This was good, but not amazing. I will probably make again sometime when I want something easy.

I used veggie crumbles instead of beef and salsa instead of tomato sauce, but these were very good! They were somewhat like mini pizzas.

I used dark rye bread instead of buns (4 large slices cut into 1/2's). The guys really seemed to love it as a football watching snack!
