Hamburger Stuffed French Bread


1 loaf French bread
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 lb ground beef, browned w/onion and garlic
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups shredded cheese (any type)
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped (optional)


In a skillet, sauté hamburger with minced garlic, chopped onion and (optional) parsley.
Preheat oven to 350°F.

Carve top in a circle (leaving a “cap” that you will replace on top later) out of French bread and hollow out the middle. Break up the bread innards into small pieces and set aside in a medium bowl.

To these bread crumbs, add the browned hamburger mixture, condensed cream of mushroom soup, and seasonings to taste.

Mix ingredients well and restuff this mixture back into French bread shell.

Top with cheese and replace the top (hopefully you saved it).

Wrap in aluminum foil and bake in 350°F oven 20 minutes. This will melt the cheese and help the flavors to combine. Slice and serve. Individually wrapped slices freeze well and make a quick and yummy take-to-work lunch.
