- 3/4 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
- 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
- 1 small green pepper, chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, minced

Reviews forCheeseburger French Loaf
"Super easy and super delicious!"
"Great recipe! I added green chiles because we like a bit of spice. I also made a beer dough in the bread machine instead of frozen dough. Its a good base recipe but i would recommend dressing it up a bit with onion and garlic powder too."
"I make this often and now just use this as a guide. I add in different spices and extra veggies sometimes!"
"This was such a hit with my family - I am making it again tonight."
"Very bland! Everyone ate it but no one liked it."
"This is fairly good, something different. I like to squirt just a little yellow mustard on top once it's finished cooking."
"Yummy and easy!"
"Absolutely delicious!! I can't believe it is only 277 calories. The whole family loved it! Will definitely make it again...and again!"
"We made this for Sunday night dinner...so yummy! The leftovers were great as well. This recipe would also be great for a football or superbowl party."
"I couldn't wait to make this recipe. Although i too made a few minor alterations. I used ground chicken, diced up 2 dill pickle stacker slices and added a bit more ketchup to balance out the mustard ketchup ratio. DELICIOUS! Oh yeah, and don't be scared of the french bread, if you UNROLL starting at the seam there are no issues, you don't have to roll it with a rolling pin. I rolled mine out on a glass cutting board and after filling and pinching seams, i placed the sprayed cookie sheet directly on top, and flipped the whole thing over, slowly removing the cutting board, it transferred remarkably well."
