This is adapted from an old TOH Quick Cooking recipe that has saved my tail many times. I keep them on hand in the freezer for those crazy busy times when I don't have time to cook.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a saucepan, add the beef, onion, and garlic; cook and crumble up the meat until the meat is not pink; drain.
  2. Add in the ketchup, pickles, salt, pepper, and hot sauce; stir and heat through.
  3. Add in cheese; stir to combine.
  4. To serve immediately: spoon 1/3 cup mixture into buns and serve.
  5. To freeze and serve later: Fill buns with 1/3 cup mixture; wrap individually in heavy-duty foil; seal tightly; will freeze up to 3 months.
  6. To use frozen sandwiches: Bake at 400° in foil for 30-35 minutes or until heated.

Forgot to rate these when I made them. These are Great! I just love having them in the freezer to pull out. Had lots of snow lately & I didn't have to worry about what to fix.

Oh yum! I didn't really have high hopes for this, but I had all the ingredients on hand and it looked like my kids would like it. I only had 1 pound of ground beef, so I used slightly less ketchup and pickles ( I also just used sweet hot dog relish because we are moving cross country in less than a month and I need to try to use up the condiments in the fridge). Anyway- the adults loved them more than the kids. Definitely a new addition to my permanent file. Man, I love RZ! Maybe next time some of these will actually make it to the freezer! Thank for sharing this!

Loved how fast and easy this recipe was. I made it as directed but we found it too sweet, so next time I will reduce the pickes. The kids said they'd be great in their lunches for school. Just ad some fruit and they're good to go.
