Hmmm...two posts in a row about food? Must be on my mind a lot lately. Oh well...
When browsing my cookbooks for recipes to use in the food co-op, I came across this one that I thought my family might like. I made it last Saturday for lunch, using a tube of prepared pizza dough because of time constraints. Today I had more time, so I made "the real thing"...using the dough in the recipe.
1 cup warm water
1 Tbsp. cooking oil
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. sugar
1 pkg. yeast
3 cups flour
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 cup diced onions
1/4 cup ketchup
1/4 cup prepared mustard
1/4 cup dill pickles, diced
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1. To prepare dough, mix together water, oil, salt, sugar and yeast. Mix until yeast is dissolved. Stir in flour. Work into a smooth ball. Leave in bowl and cover to rise. (I left it rise about 45+ minutes)
2. Fry ground beef and onions together. Remove from heat and drain all excess fat. Mix in ketchup, mustard, pickles and cheese, stirring well. Set aside.
3. On a floured surface, roll dough out into a 12" x 18" rectangle. Spread filling over dough. Roll up like a jelly roll.
4. Place seam side down on a greased jelly roll pan. Brush with water and sprinkle with sesame seeds. (I didn't use sesame seeds...just baked it as is, and sprayed with a little oil on top to make it brown)
5. Bake at 350* for 30-35 minutes. Serve. (We had ketchup, etc. available as condiments)
I think this just might be a new family favorite!
