I did my first loaf after reading all the reviews and my husband loves it. I’d like to suggest letting the loaf sit for 15 minutes before cutting, this will prevent oozing of the cheese.
When I made it the second time, I dicovered a way to simplify the rolling process and had great success.
I divided my meat mixture into 3 batches and cheese into 2 batches (like a lasagne). Fill the bottom of a 9×13 dish with the 1st batch, then sprinkle cheese on top, avoiding the edges.
I then pat the 2nd batch on top, taking a little care to seal the edges with a spatula. Cheese on top of that.
Finally, the 3rd batch of meat on top of that, sealing the edges again.
I then sprinkled ketchup and mustard overall. It came out tasting the same as the recipe indicated, but saves much time and effort.
Delicious! Here are a few of my suggestions – to avoid the grease problem – use super lean beef – I used 95% lean, it wasn’t greasy at all… also, I used mozzarella in the middle (part-skim). It was perfect! And, for those of you watching calories/fat, it’s pretty friendly, only 3 WW points per slice!
This is a great recipe! I only gave it 4 stars because I found the “jelly-roll” effect to be more trouble than it was worth. Instead, I just half the meat mixture and make a channel for the cheese down the center and then top with the remaining meat mixture. It is much more simple and it isn’t as messy! Tastes fantastic as is or is easy to jazz up too!
We loved this, I did add some Montreal steak seasoning and worcestershire to it and topped it with barbecue sauce. I didn’t have any wax paper, and parchment made it really easy to roll up. There was one spot where I didn’t seal it well, so the cheese goozed out. I also baked it in a loaf pan and periodically drained the grease and let it sit for 15 minutes to ease in slicing it. Thanks Douglas, this was a winner in our house! 🙂
Wow! Even my 5 yr old liked it. It really reminds of a MacDonalds’ cheeseburger. I thought it was good and will make it again. I halved the recipe & used very lean ground beef, american cheese slices, and 1 tablespoon worchestshire.
2 pounds lean ground beef
1 cup dry breadcrumbs
