Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed French Bread

Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed French Bread ~ A fun twist on the classic Mushroom Swiss burger by stuffing everything inside hallowed French bread. Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed French Bread ~ The Complete SavoristI needed a loaf of French bread for a dish I was going to prepare. I happened to be at Sam’s Club where buying bread means buying two loaves.  I’m known to love bread, so I was certain it would get used up in one way or another.

A day went by. Maybe two. I knew the life expectancy of my bread was decreasing with each passing moment.  I knew I just couldn’t eat an entire loaf on my own.  I had an idea, wrote a recipe.  I was excited.
. Then I went into the kitchen to make my recipe…the bread had molded! DRATS! My meat had thawed, cheese had been purchased, and the mushrooms were ready and ripe.Then as usual, life got out of control. I couldn’t get this dish made.  I was actually sad.

I used up my ingredients in another recipe to avoid them spoiling as well.

But I wanted to make this  Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed French Bread for days and days and finally, the stars aligned and I was able to get in the kitchen and make my stuffed bread.

It’s an easy recipe. Cook the meat, hallow the bread, all all the goodies, toss in the oven, and there you go, Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed French Bread.

      Thank you HT! I think you should triple the mushrooms, maybe a mushroom medley to make it fit your dietary needs.

    I just made this for dinner tonight and my husband and I loved it! I will definitely be making it again! I added a little worcestershire sauce to both the onions and beef mixtures and used dijon mustard instead of yellow. Thanks for the great recipe!
