This is a great hot sandwich that is easy to prepare, and can be frozen to enjoy later! My mom concocted this recipe when I was little, and it goes great with French fries or even potato chips! It can be a little messy, so you may need a fork!

Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, brown the ground beef with the onion, green pepper, and mushrooms. Drain off excess grease. Reduce heat to medium, and stir in the cream of mushroom soup. Mix in the Cheddar cheese until blended, then remove from heat.

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Scoop out the centers of the Kaiser rolls on both the top and bottom. Spoon the ground beef mixture into the rolls. Wrap each one in aluminum foil.

  • Bake for 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the rolls are toasted.

Freezing

If freezing these, don't bake them. Wrap in aluminum foil, and seal in freezer safe plastic bag. To reheat, heat oven to 300 degrees F (150 degrees C), and cook for 55 to 60 minutes or until thawed and heated through.

We were skeptical as this dish was cooking but have no fear this was delicious! Didn't have Kaiser rolls so we piled it on Texas toast and put them in the over open-faced which browned the top nicely. It didn't look all that appetizing but we were pleasantly surprized at how tasty this was--like a very cheesy cheeesburger. Read More

This was alright. It wasn't as good as I expected. My only change was to add around 1 tsp. of garlic powder. I probably will not be making this again. It was just too bland for me. I will not be making this again. Read More

This looked like "hamburger helper without the noodles on a bun." Taste was okay. I think the meat mix could benefit from some spices even though I did add a dash of garlic/onion powder when I added the soup...but it needed "more." The combination of the funky look and mediocre taste makes me wonder if I'll try this again. It wasn't bad but I think it needs a little more "Umph" to get me to make it twice. However it was a snap to make! Read More

Did not like this at all. The mushroom flavour was overpowering it was too bland and crusty bread ended up going soggy!! That never happens! I highly recommend anyone skip out on this one and I will not be making it again. Read More

Adding a little beef base with water then adding the mushroom soup and cooking down another 5-8 mins before adding the cheese seemed to help my ground round. I also added fresh garlic with the veggies. I think ground chuck or a good hamburger meat can make a great difference. My husband thought it tasted like a ground beef "Philly Steak" sandwich. Very very tasty and a much better alternative to a sloppy joe! Read More

Surprisingly good1 I did modify it a little. I'm not big on mushrooms or cooked-in onions so I left both out. I sauteed some peppers and fresh minced garlic and browned the meat in that. Once brown I added the cr. of mushroom. I used onion buns and baked the open face style. I had the meat on one side and topped that with french fried onions. On the other side I put the cheese. I baked it at 350 for about five minutes to crunch up the onions and melt the cheese. Really tasty! Tastewise I'd give four stars (because I like to reserve five for really outstanding dishes). However it's so quick easy and FILLING that it gets five stars!!! Read More

This is a great to-go dinner. I made it one night before my husband and son left to go hunting. I left the sandwiches wrapped in foil and placed them in a brown paper bag to go - they were still hot when they arrived and they both loved them. It is now one of our family's favorites. Read More
