My Girl Paula: Hamburger Bun Toast

I made these to go along with the bacon cheeseburger soup. They sure did taste good together. You can find this recipe in the noc/dec magizine.

3 tbsp butter, melted
1 tbsp mustard
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
4 hamburger buns, split
1 1/2 cups shredded swiss cheese
1 1/2 tsp garlic salt with parsley

Preheat broiler. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a small bowl, combine melted butter, mustard, and worcestershire sauce. spread over the cut sides of buns. Place, cut side up, on prepared baking sheet; top each evenly with cheese. Sprinkle each with garlic salt with parley. Broil, 5 inches from heat, for 2-3 minsor until cheese is melted and buns are golding brown. Serve immediately.

My Girl, Paula: Bacon Cheesebuger Soup

This weeks My Girl Paula was anything beef. Since its been really cold here i decided to make a soup. This one was a hit with my usband and I, kids liked the broth. Instead o
f usinf the french fried onions I used the crispy bacon. And I also used beef broth, but that was a mistake, didn't realize it was beef stock until I poured half the cantaner in. It still came out really good.. Just might have to make it again. This recipe can be found in the nov/dec magazine.

10 slices bacon, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 pounds ground chuck
1 onion, chopped
2 tsp, minced garlic
1 (32oz) box low sodium chicken broth
1 (14.5oz) can petit diced tomatoes
1 (10.75oz) can chedder cheese soup
1/4 cup dill pickle relish
2 tbsp worcestershire sauce
french fried onions, optional

In a large Dutch oven, cook bacon until crispy; remove from pan, and drain on paper towels. Add ground beef, onion, and garlic; cook for 6-8 mins, or until beef is browned and crumbly. Drain well. Add broth, tomatoes, soup, relish and worcestershire. Cook for 10 to 15 mins longer, until heated through. Garnish with french fried onions, if desired.
