My mom stuffs soft homemade yeast rolls with ground beef, tomato sauce and cheese to make these tasty sandwiches. They're great leftovers, too. My son takes them in his lunch the next day. —Nancy Holland, Morgan Hill, California

Nutritional Facts

1 serving (1 each) equals 255 calories, 10 g fat (4 g saturated fat), 42 mg cholesterol, 378 mg sodium, 27 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 13 g protein.

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Add the milk, sugar, shortening, egg, salt and 2 cups flour; beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour to form a soft dough.
  2. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 4-6 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 30 minutes.
  3. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in tomato sauce. Remove from the heat; set aside.
  4. Punch dough down; divide into 16 pieces. On a lightly floured surface, gently roll out and stretch each piece into a 5-in. circle. Top each circle with two pieces of cheese and about 3 tablespoons beef mixture. Bring dough over filling to center; pinch edges to seal.
  5. Place seam side down on a greased baking sheet. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 20 minutes. Bake at 400° for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. Refrigerate leftovers. Yield: 16 sandwiches.

MY REVIEW

our family LOVES this recipe, we have been making it for years! the dough by itself makes fantastic rolls too :)

MY REVIEW

At least one evening a week I work, and I try to make something during the day that is easy for my teens to just grab and eat. Made these for the first time this week. Next time, I will double the hamburger filling recipe. The dough expanded A LOT, and therefore the filling in the middle was so spread out and thin it was like eating a big roll with only a few crumbles of hamburger. Plus, I ran out before I filled all 16, so the last few I filled with ham and cheese. I will make these again, and I'm sure they will be better with more filling.

This is one of the best recipes I've had in the house for a long time!! Great idea and they freeze so easily. Stuff with whatever you want. This recipe is so versatile with what can go into the middle.
