Cheeseburger Loaf Recipe

"I sometimes use spaghetti sauce and mozzarella cheese or picante sauce with Monterey Jack cheese to vary the taste."
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:6-8 servings


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) unsliced French bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 8 ounces plain or Mexican process cheese (Velveeta), sliced


  • 1. In a large saucepan, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add soup, garlic salt, salt and pepper; simmer, uncovered for 5-10 minutes.
  • 2. Meanwhile, slice the top third off the bread. Hollow out bottom half of loaf, leaving a 3/4-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use). Spread butter on cut side of bread. Place loaf on an ungreased baking sheet and broil 4-in. from the heat until lightly browned.
  • 3. Spoon beef mixture into shell; arrange cheese slices on top. Broil 2-3 minutes longer or until cheese is melted. Replace bread top. Yield: 6-8 servings.
