Monday Menu ~ Taco Sandwich

As promised, here I go!  This sandwich was a huge hit last night.  It's a bit messy to eat, but everyone loved it...

Taco Sandwich

1 loaf (1 lb.) unsliced French bread
4 oz. cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup salsa (I used the fresh Trader Joes salsa...yummy!)
1 pound ground beef (or ground chicken or ground turkey breast or whatever)
2 TBSP taco seasoning
1 cup-ish shredded lettuce
1 large tomato, sliced
6 slices cheese (American, cheddar, pepper jack...whatever you like)

Cut bread in half lengthwise; hollow out top and bottom of loaf, leaving a half-inch shell.  You can discard the removed bread or feed it to your growing boy or eat it yourself or feed it to the birds or use it for something else.

Beat together softened cream cheese and salsa.  Spread evenly on top and bottom of bread shell.

In a large skillet, brown meat until no longer pink, drain.  Stir in taco seasoning.

Layer lettuce and tomato in bottom of bread shell.

Top with meat and then cheese. 

Replace top, then slice and serve.

Enjoy!  (It's much yummier than it looks!)


  1. Wow. Looks you have an Asian fan! The sandwich actually looks really yummy. Maybe a good Entiat dinner?

  2. ok, I ran the first comment through Google translator with the result: Like your blog, leave messages for you to continue to fuel.

    Something got lost in the translation, but sounds like she/he likes your blog!

  3. This looks good. Have done a similar one with sausage, eggs, milk and mozzarella cheese and baked it. It is good when the weather is cold. Yours would be great on a warm day (like yesterday). Thanks for sharing.
