French Bread Stuffed with Beef Recipe

Publisher Photo
A wonderful lady in Spanish Fork, Utah shared this recipe with me—it fed her large farm family, and now I serve it to my family and friends. Using Colorado beef and an Idaho potato makes this hearty sandwich a real Western meal! If you have a leftover baked potato from dinner, this is a perfect way to use it.

Switched out the beef for ground sausage. Fantastic and easy!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 26, 2011

Although the beef filling is delicious, the bread gets soggy too quickly. I guess if you eat immediately it might be OK. My guess is that this filling would be FAR, FAR better as a type of stroganoff, served with noodles. It tastes kind of like beef stroganoff (probably due to the mushrooms. I will just skip the bread next time!
