Cheeseburger Bread

I won't take credit for this - another one I saw on Rachel Ray. I made the Valentio's Pizza crust recipe, cut it in two, and made on Cheeseburger and one Pizza sandwich. It tasted really good.
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoons chili powder
  • Salt and ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup yellow mustard
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • pizza dough
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour or cornmeal
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 tablespoons sesame seeds

Preheat oven to 375°F.

Brown hamburger in pan with chopped onions.

Add the onion and chili powder to the pan, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the onion is tender, 4-5 minutes.

Add the mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and beef stock to the pot, bring up to a bubble and simmer until thickened, 4-5 minutes. Let cool.

Dust your hands and lightly coat the pizza dough with flour or cornmeal before rolling it out onto a work surface. Roll out the dough slightly so it's approximately 11x16".

Top the dough with the cooled meat mixture and top that with the cheese. Leave a one-inch border on each side. Fold all the borders in and over onto an inch of the meat mixture. Roll the dough up into a log shape forming a spiral in the middle.

Brush the roll with egg wash and sprinkle it with sesame seeds. Transfer the roll to a baking sheet and bake until dough is evenly golden brown, about 45 minutes. Let cool slightly.

To serve, slice up the cheeseburger bread and serve with a side of ketchup for dipping.

Here is what it looked like:

that looks really good... do you have to eat it right away though? so the bread wouldn't get soggy around the filling...

I gave it to Roger in his lunch the next day and he didn't complain....You could always make 1/2 the recipe too and just use a smaller piece of dough so it only made enough for 1 meal.
