I thought this would be a great snack for the kids... until I couldn't stop eating it.
slightly adapted from Eat Cake for Dinner
Makes 1 small loaf
1 French Bread loaf (I made my own. Recipe here.)
500g lean ground beef
4 sping onions, finely sliced
1 clove garlic, peeled and finely chopped
1 can cream of mushroom soup
2 tablespoon milk
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup grated cheddar cheese
Preheat the oven to 180C.
Slice the bread in half horizontally. Scoop out the centre of the loaf so that you have two hollowed out halves. Tear the middle pieces of bread into small pieces and place into a bowl. Set aside.
Place the two halves of bread onto a baking tray. Set aside.
Put a little olive oil into a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook the spring onions and garlic for a few minutes. Increase the heat to medium-high and add the beef. Brown the meat and then add the soup, milk, Worcestershire sauce and salt and pepper. Stir and cook for about 5 minutes.
Add the beef mixture to the bowl containing the pieces of bread and stir to combine.
Spoon the filling into the cavity of one half of the bread. Top with grated cheese and then place the top half of the bread on top. Press down firmly and bake for 15 - 20 minutes. Leave to stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
