This is a yummy recipe and great for those nights when you do not want to spend a lot of time in the kitchen! This is one of my husband's favorites - I got the recipe from my Grandma Sadie, an Australian. Her mother made this for her when she was growing up in Wauchope, NSW!

  • In a medium bowl, mix together the ground beef, salt, pepper, ketchup, onion, Worcestershire sauce, cornflakes, and evaporated milk until evenly blended. Divide the mixture in half, and spread onto the cut side of each half of the loaf of bread. Place them crust side down onto a baking sheet.

  • Bake for 30 to 35 minutes in the preheated oven, until meat is no longer pink. During the last 5 minutes of baking, place the slices of cheese over the top to melt. Depending on how many you are cooking for, you can cut into smaller pieces or serve in larger sections. Enjoy.

Since putting this recipe on here I have become a vegetarian. And since I loved this recipe I came up with a meatless way to eat it. Simply take a package of the Morningstar crumbled soymeat (defrosted) and add a bit more ketchup and evap milk to make it a sticky precooked consistency. I then zapped it with some Montreal steak seasoning in addition to the rest of the ingredients and slathered in cheese. Still yummy. THX Read More

Followed the ingredient list except for the cornflake crumbs...didn't have any so used Ritz cracker crumbs as I do for my meatloaf and I added shredded cheese to the mix. Changed up the cooking method a bit for an experiment. Used about 6 small Italian hoagie buns split. Spread the meat mixture about a 1/2 inch thick on one side and then put the top back on. I then wrapped each individually in foil and baked 30 minutes in the 375 oven. To serve I cut each in half. Worked out faily well this way and kept the bun from getting too crunchy. My son liked them very much but my husband and I thought they we just ok...just seemed to be lacking something for me and my husband didn't like the soggy bread bits. My try again sometime. Read More

We loved these cheeseburgers! The crisp bread was out of the ordinary but really good. I'm a picky eater so I loved the meat and cheese filling but I'm sure it would be tasty with extras like peppers mushrooms etc. Read More

Thank you so much for sharing this recipe. It is something I grew up eating but had not been able to find the recipe for. I made it last night and got much comfort from it. My husband says it's a "keeper" and that's not the reaction I've gotten from all of the recipes I've tried from this site! I urge everyone to try it. Read More

A pretty decent recipe... I used the suggestion of another reviewer and added an egg into the meat mix and was pretty satisfied. That said next time I'm going to try adding in some minced garlic and perhaps some more Worcestershire sauce. Worth trying but expect to add your own tweaks to perfect it. Read More

The filling was good but the bread crust got so crisp it was nearly impossible to bite through. If I make this again I will take another reviewer's tip and brown the meat first and bake only for a short time. Read More

This recipe sure sounds better than it tastes. It tasted like meatloaf on crusty bread to me. My family wouldn't want me to make it again. Read More
