French Burgers

4 Nov

This is a Grandma Young signature dish.  We make it often, and while they’re never quite like hers, I have gotten Derek hooked on them as well.  It’s kind of like a barbecue-y, cheesy meatloaf, minus the dried, crumbled french roll, on a fresh buttery, garlic french roll.  I know which one I’d choose :0)

I tried for the first time today, to prepare the meat mixture in my food processor and it worked like a charm.  I shredded the cheese first then put the metal blade in, added the other ingredients and vroom vroom.  My 7-cup processor was borderline too small, so make sure yours is at least that big before trying it.

So as not to be wasteful, I also take the torn out middles of the rolls, brush them with butter, sprinkle with garlic salt and bake alongside the burgers for 15 minutes or so for some tasty homemade croutons.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 bunch green onion, chopped
  • 1 can chopped black olives
  • 1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 6 T barbecue sauce
  • 6 french rolls
  • butter
  • garlic salt

Mix ground beef, green onion, olives, 1 cup cheese and barbecue sauce.

Cut french rolls in half and scoop out soft center. Butter outside edge and bottom of each half. Sprinkle lightly with garlic salt.

Place on foil covered cookie sheet and fill with meat mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake @325F for 45 minutes.
