Ingredients

  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 4 slices bacon cooked and crumbled
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1 French baguette
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese or cheese of your choice

Optional Toppings

  • diced onions
  • sliced mushrooms
  • shredded lettuce
  • tomato slices
  • condiments: ketchup, mustard, etc.

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Add uncooked beef to a large skillet. Sprinkle with seasoning mix, salt, and pepper, and cook over medium-high heat, breaking up meat with a fork to crumble and stirring occasionally to prevent burning. (If desired, add diced onions and mushrooms after 3 minutes). Cook until no pink remains, about 8 minutes. Remove pan from heat, drain grease, stir in cooked bacon and set aside.
  • Add butter and garlic to a small, microwaveable dish. Cook on high power until butter is melted, about 25 seconds.
  • Cut French loaf into 4 equal sized pieces, and then slice each piece horizontally. Lay pieces cut side up on a sheet pan or baking stone. Brush each piece with melted garlic butter, add some of the beef and bacon mixture, and top with shredded cheese.
  • Bake at 375 for 10 minutes, or until cheese has melted. Top with your favorite condiments and place two slices of bread together, forming the perfect sandwich!
