A twist on the usual chicken version. These freeze well without the gravy. A twist on the usual chicken version.**edited on October 24 to add instructions for Once a Month Cooking(see step 11) I usually make these during a cooking blitz and freeze them without the gravy until I need them**
- 1 1⁄2 lbs ground beef
- 2 eggs
- 1 small onion
- 1 (1 1/4 ounce) package onion soup mix, dry
- 1⁄2 cup rolled oats (can be blended in a blender for finer crumbs)
- 8 slices ham or 8 slices bacon
- 8 slices mozzarella cheese
- 2 eggs
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can mushroom soup, undiluted
- 1 cup milk
- 2 teaspoons flour
- Combine the first 5 ingredients.
- Make 8 thin patties.
- Place 1 piece of ham or bacon and 1 piece of cheese in the middle of each.
- Fold over and be sure the cheese and bacon are covered.
- Whip 2 eggs.
- Dip the beef rolls into the egg, then roll in the bread crumbs.
- Place into casserole dish.
- Bake 1 hour at 350 degrees or until done.
- Make gravy with milk, flour, and soup.
- Pour over rolls and bake until sauce bubbles.
- **I usually bake these as directed without gravy, cool, and then freeze in a ziploc bag. Defrost overnight and then add sauce and bake for 1 hour. OR bake from frozen for 1 hour and then top with sauce and back for an additional hour**.
Made this last night for dinner and my husband and I just loved it. Was very easy but, looks like you really fussed when it is done cooking. Can't wait till Wednesday night to have it again (surprisingly, we did have some leftover).
quite a delicious meal idea. The only negative thing was clean up of the pan afterwards.
OMG Pamela! These were DELICIOUS! 5 star,plus, plus, plus!!!! We so enjoyed these! I prepared exactly as written, using bacon as opposed to ham, as it was in the fridge,(my ham was frozen!) and I think it was a very good choice, I will probably use it every time! I made sure to cover the bacon & cheese carefully but quite a bit of my cheese still melted out, didn't matter though as it still can be spooned over top of them with the sauce. I actually ended up serving with white rice instead of noodles and the sauce was great with/over it! My sister her hubby and son came by just after we ate and they hadn't eaten yet so I reluctantly had to part with my leftovers...LOL!! They LOVED them too, raves all around, and my sister happily took home the recipe!!!! We both thought they were ,as you say, a great alternative to chicken cordon bleu (and a little cheaper too!!) We will both be making this one again & again! Thanks so much!:)
