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

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!
