How to make it

  • Brown ground meat in heavy skillet(I use cast iron).
  • Add onion part way through the cooking of the meat, to desired doneness.(we aren't raw onion fans, so prefer them cooked a bit...I added them about halfway through the meat browning)
  • Drain if needed and cool slightly.
  • In sprayed 9X13 casserole, break apart 1 loaf(1lb) of bread dough into about 1/2T sized balls. Dough bits should be touching in spots, but not overly crowded.
  • Add ketchup, mustard, relish and salt and pepper to meat/onion mixture. Stir well to combine.
  • Pour meat mixture over first dough layer. See Photo
  • Sprinkle with crumbed bacon and shredded cheese, reserving about 1/4 of each. See Photo
  • Tear off 2T sized bits of dough from 2nd loaf and cover the cheese/meats mixture. Again, they can be touching, but don't over crowd. See Photo
  • Sprinkle with remaining cheese and bacon.
  • Let rise 30 minutes at room temperature, or at this point, it can be refrigerated for a few hours as it rises, instead.
  • Once risen, bake at 350 for about 30 minutes until dough is nicely browned and cooked through. See Photo
  • *I was easily able to turn my bread out onto a flat platter, then back over into another pan, so a double transfer to a serving tray should be fairly easy to do. Just let it cool about 10 minutes or so before attempting.
  • **Had I know the above would have been so easy, I would have sprinkled sesame seeds over the top layer of dough with the cheese and bacon...when I was creating it, I didn't know if it would be served top or bottom up!

    Okay more fabulous football food from the most inventive cook at GroupRecipes!! RAH RAH KENI!!!!
    I have to try this. I have never worked with frozen bread dough. I was surprised it could rise in the refrigerator. I love that you used the step by step photos for this. Big help since I am new to the idea of using frozen bread dough.
