"This is a dish you can get on the table in about a half hour flat, and as my teenagers say--hella bomb! From Cuisine at Home. Serve over Recipe #139580 or frozen cheese toasts."

    Very good recipe. I followed recipe except I used mozzarella instead of swiss. Kids loved it.

    I've been wanting to make this ever since I got the magazine in the mail a couple of years ago... Finally got around to trying it, and I sure am glad I did!! A little involved, but totally worth it! Delicious!!!

    This recipe is FANTASTIC and will regularly be in my rotation.... I found it first in the Cuisine at home mag a friend gave me .... YUMMY!!! My son LOVED the taste of the bread in the juice - i followed the recipe for the cheese toast in the cuisine magazine that came w/this recipe instead of buying frozen - VERY good!!!! I also didn't have the low sodium broth on hand - used regular but it was not overly salty to me at all.. I did use only 1/2 tsp of kosher salt in broth just in case. I would prob put more flavoring into the ground meat to my liking - otherwise the sauce is the BOMB served this also with mashed potatoes and the gravy soaked into those and enhanced those as well - VERY VERY flavorful! used merlot for the wine!

    We make this quite often...perfect for company! I use ciabatta bread cut into squares and broil swiss and parm cheeses on top before putting the Salisbury steak on top. What would we do without Cooks Country??

    I saw this recipe in the same magazine, and made it for supper. My mom absolutely loved it. I didn't have scallions so I just used baby onions but it still was delicious!


I live in the San Francisco area and love it here. I discovered Recipezaar (then Kitchen) in 2001 and have been so happy to have my favorite recipes stored safely here. I am mother to 7 and grandmother to 7. I love to knit, smock, sew, etc., but my favorite hobby of the moment is traditional rug hooking. This is a sample of what I do.? It's called "November".? I dyed most of the wool myself. It is made from wool flannel, cut into strips a little less than 1/4" and then worked into a linen backing. This is my 3rd rug.
