Open Faced Sloppy Cheeseburgers and Homemade Fries
I actually got this idea from a recipe site and I didn't save the page so now I can't find it. If and when I do I will link to it.
This was our dinner last night and it was a hit with everyone.
Open Faced Sloppy Cheeseburgers (fed 4 with no leftovers)
1lb Ground Round
1/3 Cup Thick and Chunky Salsa
4 heaping TBS Ketchup
2 heaping TBS Mustard
1 TBS Worcestershire Sauce
1 tsp Garlic Powder
Brown and drain the ground beef. Add in each of the above ingredients and blend well. My ingredient amounts differ from the original recipe. I personally just started adding a little bit of each ingredient until I liked the way it tasted.
Once it was heated through I scooped it over a halved steak roll. I think sourdough, hamburger buns or your favorite type of roll would work well with this. Then I added a slice of american cheese on top and put it in the oven to melt.
These were very yummy, everyone in the house scarfed them down!
Homemade Fries (these are a favorite around here)
I peeled 6 medium potatoes and cut them by hand into fry like slivers. I sprayed a cookie sheet with canola spray then layered the potatoes on the pan. Then I lightly sprayed the potatoes with the canola spray and sprinkled garlic powder on them. I baked them on 400 for about 50 minutes.
This made exactly the right amount of food for our family of 4. My hubby was able to have 2 sandwiches and the girls and I had 1 each. The fries were split four ways and there were no leftovers.
If you have a bigger family or teenage boys I suggest doubling or even tripling the recipe.
