"Immoral" Sandwich Filling (Loose Meat)

"Just the thing for a day when you're wanton something delicious, and a hamburger patty is just too restrictive. Loosen up your inhibitions and pile some loose meat on a bun. Wicked over hot, whipped potatoes as well."

  1. Sorry...We just did not care for this. I did add a onion and hot pepper flakes. But has my Dh said this taste as weird as it looks. But he ate it LOL.But that is the fun of cooking, trying something new.I did cut the recipe to 6serv. And some times that does not work. thanks,Bobbie Girl
  2. This was easy, delicious, and extremely versatile. I can see endless options with this baby.This time I served it on toasted Kaiser buns. Cayenne amount was just right for me, but I added 2 cloves of garlic but will add more next time (personnal preference). I had a medium cheddar, so that's what i used.
  3. Wonderful tangy sloppy sandwich.
  4. Delicious sandwich. Salt and pepper amounts used--2 t. salt, 1 t. coarse black pepper. Served on lightly toasted buns spread w/ yellow mustard and added dill pickles slices on top. I love the cheese slices melted into the ground beef. A quick and easy supper for us. Thanks for sharing.
  5. This was really a very nice change from plain burgers! I had only 3/4 lb of beef to use up, and I was able to cut the recipe down perfectly. I used brown mustard (all I had) and just a small squirt of ketchup (for my hubby's taste), but everything else was to the letter. I steamed a couple hoagie buns on top of the meat and topped our big sandwiches with American cheese and dill pickles. It was WONDERFUL! Thanks for a great recipe!
