I first made this recipe back in the late 70s after a friend served it on game night following a local high school football game.
As young mothers with toddlers, we were always looking for frugal, yet attractive recipes to feed several people. I often made it for our family of five or brought to potlucks.
It's great for game day food, a buffet table, or family meal anytime.
Beef Stroganoff Sandwich
1 unsliced loaf of french bread
1 pound of ground beef
1/2 cup diced onion
1 cup sour cream
1 tsp. Worcestershire
1 Tab. milk
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
2 thinly sliced tomatoes
1 sliced green pepper
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
Cut loaf in half lengthwise, wrap in foil and heat at 375 oven for 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile brown beef with onion; drain fat. Stir in sour cream, milk, Worcestershire and garlic powder. Open foil and butter the surface of each loaf half.
Spread 1/2 of meat mixture on loaf tops. Layer each half loaf with thinly sliced tomatoes, green peppers, then top with cheese. Bake with top uncovered on baking sheet at 375 for 5 minutes, so vegetables soften slightly and cheese melts. Slice to serve. Easily serves 8.
Estimated cost: $5 to $6; about .70 cents per serving
