Sandwich Filling

Rated as 4.62 out of 5 Stars

"This is a delicious filling that is put onto hamburger (or hot dog) rolls and baked in the oven. Fantastic for a cold weekend day when the kids need a good lunch. This recipe came from my mother. It has been one of my favorite recipes for over 30 years."

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  2. Cook and stir ground beef in a large skillet until well browned, about 10 minutes; drain fat. Place cooked beef in a large bowl. Stir in tomato sauce, onion, black olives, pimentos, mushrooms, Cheddar cheese, chili powder, salt, and black pepper.
  3. Spoon sandwich filling on hamburger bun bottoms, spreading to the edges. Filling should be approximately 1/2" thick in the center of the sandwich.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until the edges start to bubble, 5-10 minutes. Turn oven to Broil and continue to cook until heated through, about 3 minutes.

My whole family really enjoyed these the only change I made was to substitute red bell pepper for the pimento because I didn't have any on hand. I will happily make these again, thanks for shari...

I have made and reviewed this before but having made it again I would say again how good it is. This time I made it like a French bread pizza and when almost done I put some extra shredded chee...

I used dark rye bread instead of buns (4 large slices cut into 1/2's). The guys really seemed to love it as a football watching snack!
