It's time for another week of Bargain Meals! Erin over at $5 Dinners (a great read!) is hosting a gathering of bloggers all over the internet, creating frugal meals straight from the sales circulars of their favorite stores. Check it out for even more inspiration. I contribute every Thursday for the current sales at Publix, which run from Wednesday to the following Tuesday. Keep in mind that you do not need to purchase two of a product to get the buy one get one price. Publix marks down their products to half price for the BOGO deals.
There are not a lot of fantastic deals at Publix this week. However, I just happen to catch a glimpse of the Rachel Ray show this weekend and saw an awesome recipe that I would like to try. It's super easy and uses many ingredients that I have on hand. Check out her site for other great recipes as well.
Here are the current sales that could be used in this recipe:
Ground Chuck, 2.69 per lb
French's Classic Mustard, currently BOGO or free with coupon
Sargento Shredded Cheese, 2 for $4
Pizza Dough from Dairy Section, regular price but many Pillsbury coupons available.
by Rachel Ray
- 2 tablespoons EVOO – Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 1 pound ground sirloin
- 1 medium onion, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon chili powder
- Salt and ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup yellow mustard
- 1/4 cup ketchup
- 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
- 1 cup beef stock
- 1 tube frozen pizza dough, defrosted
- 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour or cornmeal
- 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 egg, beaten with 1 tablespoon water
- 2 tablespoons sesame seeds
Preheat oven to 375°F.
Place large skillet over medium-high heat with 2 turns of the pan of EVOO, about 2 tablespoons. Add the meat to the pan and cook until golden brown, 5-6 minutes.
Add the onion and chili powder to the pan, season with salt and pepper, and cook until the onion is tender, 4-5 minutes.
Add the mustard, ketchup, Worcestershire sauce and beef stock to the pot, bring up to a bubble and simmer until thickened, 4-5 minutes. Let cool.
Dust your hands and lightly coat the pizza dough with flour or cornmeal before rolling it out onto a work surface. Roll out the dough slightly so it's approximately 11x16".
Top the dough with the cooled meat mixture and top that with the cheese. Leave a one-inch border on each side. Fold all the borders in and over onto an inch of the meat mixture. Roll the dough up into a log shape forming a spiral in the middle.
Brush the roll with egg wash and sprinkle it with sesame seeds. Transfer the roll to a baking sheet and bake until dough is evenly golden brown, about 45 minutes. Let cool slightly.
To serve, slice up the cheeseburger bread and serve with a side of ketchup for dipping.
