French Bread Cheeseburgers


¾ pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
1 small onion, chopped
1 medium green pepper, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 Tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 Tablespoon ketchup
1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated crusty French loaf
4 slices (1 oz. each) reduced fat American cheese

2. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the flour, mustard and ketchup; set aside.

3. Unroll the bread dough starting at the seam.
