On the weekend I picked up some "bread bowls" that would have worked. And on Monday, I went to work. It's a great meal, similar to chili in a bowl.
Quick Pizza Rolls
1 pound of ground beef
1/2 cup of chipped green pepper
1/4 cup of chopped onion
1 can (8oz) of tomato sauce
1 can (6oz) of tomato paste
1/4 cup of water
1 garlic clove, minced
1 teaspoon of sugar
1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning
1/2 teaspoon of salt
6 French Rolls
3/4 cup of shredded cheddar Cheese
3/4 cup of shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
1 - In a large skillet, cook the beef, pepper and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, water, garlic, sugar, Italian seasoning and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 10 minutes or until heated through.
2 - Cut 1/4inch off the top of each roll; set aside. Carefully hollow out bottom of roll leaving in a 1/4 inch shell (discard removed bread, or save for another use). Fill each roll with 1/2 cup meat mixture. Sprinkle with cheese. Replace bread tops.
3 - Place desired amount of sandwiches on a baking sheet. Bake at 350F for 10 to 15 minutes or until heated through. Individually wrap remaining sandwiches tightly in foil; freeze for up to 3 months.
TO USE FROZEN SANDWICHES: Thaw in the refrigerator overnight. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking. Place foil-wrapped sandwiches on baking sheet and bake for 30 to 35 minutes at 350F or until heated through.
Miranda's Mix-Ups: As normal, no green peppers. Everything else was about the same. I didn't have French Rolls and I would TOTALLY use them next time. The buns we had made it a little hard to eat after heating.
Q - didn't eat the bread but ate the meat mixture, asking for more
K - Ate some of the bun but really liked the meat mixture
Arnold - had 3 helpings (I guess he liked it!)
Me - Good. Really similar to chili in a bowl and may make this version for Arnold for the superbowl!
