Ingredients

1
lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1
medium green bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
1
medium red bell pepper, cut into 1/2-inch strips
1
small onion, cut into thin wedges
1/2
cup creamy Italian dressing
1

4
slices (6 oz) thinly sliced provolone cheese, quartered

  • 1 In 12-inch skillet, cook ground beef, bell peppers and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in 1/4 cup of the dressing.
  • 2 Spread remaining 1/4 cup dressing on cut sides of bread. Place both halves, cut sides up, on ungreased large cookie sheet. Broil 4 to 6 inches from heat 3 to 5 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove bread from broiler. Spread beef mixture on cut halves of bread. Top with cheese.

Expert Tips

Italian bread has a dense texture, so it works well for these hot broiled sandwiches.

You can use any meltable cheese for these sandwiches, such as American, mozzarella or Gouda.
