Quick and easy recipe. This was a favorite of mine growing up. A true kid pleaser. Not spicy at all, so not for true italian food cravers.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Brown ground beef in a frying pan, drain grease.
  3. While beef is browning, slice italian bread into thick slices (about 3/4 inch thick). Each slice will be one sandwich.
  4. Once beef is browned add 8-10oz can of PLAIN tomato sauce to frying pan. Simmer. Can add salt and pepper to taste.
  5. While beef and sauce is simmering, toast slices of bread in oven for approx 3-5 minutes.
  6. Remove toasted bread from oven and spread with 1/4 to 1/2 cup of beef mixture. Top with 1-11/2 slices american cheese.
  7. Place back in oven for 5-10 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  8. Remove from oven and enjoy with your favorite salad!
