Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 10 minutes
Total Time 20 minutes
- 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
- diced onions
- sliced mushrooms
- shredded lettuce
- tomato slices
- condiments: ketchup, mustard, etc.
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!
