One evening, Mom and I helped each other put together this sandwich using things we had on hand. It's delicious and was an instant hit with our family.—Melody Stoltzfus, Parkesburg, Pennsylvania


  • 1 loaf (1 pound) unsliced Italian bread
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • 1 large tomato, sliced
  • 6 slices American cheese


  1. Cut bread in half lengthwise; hollow out top and bottom of loaf, leaving a 1/2-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use).
  2. In a large skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink, breaking into crumbles, 5-7 minutes; drain. Stir in taco seasoning.
  3. In a small bowl, beat cream cheese and salsa until blended. Spread inside top and bottom of bread shell. Add lettuce, tomato, beef mixture and cheese to bottom shell. Replace bread top. Cut into slices.
