Ingredients

  • 3/4 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon ketchup
  • 1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated crusty French loaf
  • 4 slices reduced-fat process American cheese product
  • 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the flour, mustard and ketchup; set aside.
  2. Unroll dough starting at the seam. Pat into a 14x12-in. rectangle. Spoon meat mixture lengthwise down the center of the dough; top with cheese slices. Bring long sides of dough to the center over filling; pinch seam to seal.
  3. Place seam side down on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush with egg white. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  4. With a sharp knife, cut diagonal slits in top of loaf. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm.
