  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 cup soft bread cubes
  • 1/4 cup whole milk
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons onion salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • Dash pepper
  • 1-1/2 pounds lean ground beef (90% lean)
  • 6 sticks (2-1/2 inches x 1/2 inch each) cheddar or mozzarella cheese
  • SAUCE:
  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic salt


  1. In a bowl, combine first six ingredients. Mix in beef. Divide into six portions. Shape each portion around a cheese stick and form into a loaf. Set aside.
  2. In a large skillet, combine all sauce ingredients. Add loaves and spoon sauce over each. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer; cook until a thermometer reads 160°, about 20 minutes.
