Supper on a Bread Slice

Supper on a Bread Slice created by Just Ducky Baines

This is tasty, but not exactly diet food and lately I've made it with ground turkey, rather than beef. I like to make this when we're vacationing at our cabin in the woods. I found this years ago in a newspaper, don't remember which one, but it was sent in by a Jane Achterberg from Wisconsin.

  • 18 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 loaf French bread, about 15 inches long (1 lb.)

    I read the other reviews first and I did add 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce and a little garlic powder to the meat mix. We felt the meat to bread ratio was a little off for our taste. We are going to try it again using 1 1/4 or 1 pound ground beef. Will definitely make again. Thanks for the recipe!

    Wow..my mom passed away a few years ago and I inherited her recipe box but this recipe was not in it. She used to make this often while we were going up....thanks so much for posting! I will be making this tonight and am hoping MY kids love it as much as my brothers and I did!

    My mom started making this back int the 60's. She used hamburger bun halves instead of the franch bread and froze them for use later. We often had them in our lunchbox (just like cold meatloaf sandwich). Still one of my favorites.

    I thought this was a great basic recipe. I agree that it was bland for my families taste. I will add garlic and worcestershire next time.
