Supper on a Bread Slice

Here is another old fashioned recipe from my Mom. She used to make this when I was a young girl. It is really quite simple, but for some reason I thought it was really special. Try it, your family will enjoy this simple supper.


  • 2/3 cup undiluted Carnation Evaporated Milk
  • 1 1/2 pound ground beef, lean
  • 1/2 cup cracker crumbs
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 Tablespoon prepared mustard
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 1 loaf of French bread

Combine all ingredients except bread and cheese. Cut loaf of bread in 1/2 lengthwise. Spread meat mixture evenly over top surface of bread. Wrap aluminum foil around crust side of each length of bread. Place on cookie sheet and bake @ 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Sprinkle cheese on top and return to oven for 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
