The week of Thanksgiving I received my first cookbook from Gooseberry Patch to review as part of the early reviewer program. This is quickly becoming my go-to weeknight cookbook. This book was MADE for the working mom. Quick, filling recipes which can also be eaten on the go. This was the first recipe I tried was this open-faced beef stroganoff sandwiches recipe and was eaten on the way to ballet.
So, what is this cookbook that I am in love with called, 101 Soups, Salads & Sandwiches.
Open-Faced Beef Stoganoff Sandwiches
The open-faced beef stroganoff sandwiches were a hit with the kids and took me 30 minutes to make and walk out the door to ballet.
I started of course by browning the hamburger in the Pampered Chef Micro Cooker that browns frozen hamburger in 7 minutes!!
While the hamburger was cooking, I prepped the bread. Now, the recipe called for French bread, but I substituted mini bagels which I have in the pantry for quick meals. I started by spreading butter on the halves of six bagels.
I then chopped up some tomatoes and green peppers for the top of the sandwiches.
When the hamburger was done, I added sour cream and seasonings to the hamburger.
I put a large scoop of the hamburger mixture on each bagel half.
I then sprinkled the diced tomatoes and green peppers along with some co-jack cheese over top of the hamburger.
I made a few without the veggies just in case one of my kids refused the veggies for some weird reason.
I baked them on 350 for 15-20 minutes. When the cheese is melted and browned, they are good to go. And they were awesome!
