Hot hamburger, the hubs’ fave go to meal is turned into a deliciously quick sandwich in this Hot Hamburger Hoagie. Swimming with ground beef, mushrooms, and delicious gravy, it will be your new fave go to meal.

I have been making some KILLER sandwiches lately. Like this week. I make lip smacking chicken fajita joes. I think S licked the pan, but i can’t confirm this as I was on doggie doodie that night, but it was awfully clean when I got back.

And I can’t say I blame him because I almost licked my bowl from lunch yesterday. I’m not ashamed to admit this because it was healthy and DELICIOUS! No. Not delicious. It was…


Oh, not to worry! That recipe will show up eventually. Just not right now. This recipe is about this delicious hot hamburger hoagie. Ya know, we almost had hot hamburger last night for dinner, but I vetoed that idea with a roasted chicken. Which was pretty darned good! I spatchcocked it and coated it with Greek seasoning. But the best part was it was marked down! I’ve been getting REALLY lucky with that lately.

Here’s HOW lucky. I wanted to make some chicken sloppy joes and though ground turkey would be better. As luck would have it, there was a package of ground chicken marked down. I wanted to make a slow cooker lemon rosemary chicken with thighs. Boneless, skinless chicken thighs marked down. I wanted to make some fajitas; Milanese style think cut steaks marked down. This week? Chicken and there were several marked down.

Like I said, lucky!

Is it lunch time yet? I’m drooling just looking at the pictures of this recipe. It was oh so tasty!

Think, Salisbury steak meets cheese steak? I think that’s the best way to describe this recipe. It has ground beef, mushrooms, onions, a delicious mushroom sauce and then topped with creamy Provolone cheese.

Oh yeah baby. Like I said…


Yup. This was lunch. It was a hearty and filling lunch, no joke!! Actually, I didn’t eat ALL that meat. I’m watching my protein intake. I am trying to maintain 6 ounces a day. For some that’s an insanely small amount, but it’s what my weight requires. If I can ever lose some, then it’ll be even less. We are definitely carb friendly in the house of AKHA.

Hence the large hoagie roll. Granted, I need to stop eating so much in general, but when one cooks food that looks and TASTES this delicious, it’s really difficult not to just eat to my heart’s content. Hence the added poundage. And the knee really doesn’t help either. Some day…

Really. Just try looking at that and NOT drooling. I dare ya! You can’t do it, can you? *I* can’t either, so you’re in good company with that one.

I am on a quest to turn almost every ground beef recipe into a sloppy joe or hoagie of some description. They’re easy, tasty, usually require few ingredients, and usually frugal eats. I have several sloppy joe type recipes already. You really should check them out.
