I’m so sorry that I’m behind on the recipes. I really have no excuse other than I got a little lazy and life sometimes gets in the way of our plans and schedules. I know I promised the Double Chocolate Treasure cookies next, but I haven’t made them yet. I did make this delicious beef roll though, with homemade pudding for dessert. The pudding will be tomorrow’s recipe.
I planned on posting this last night, but I had to leave. Now, it’s Thursday morning and this is going to be my first recipe post this week. I think today you’ll get a two fer and I’ll post the pudding also.
This is another of the famous index card recipes, typed on an actual typewriter, a MANUAL typewriter! I don’t remember my mom ever making these, but the typewriter font is so familiar to me that it seems like my own handwriting. I was the one who typed out her recipes for her onto these index cards so perhaps I ate it at least once. It should have been a lot more often! These were really good, just remember to slice them BEFORE you cook them so they cook all the way through the first time.
We all liked this meal. I served it with plain green beans. My daughter would have preferred that the beans have bacon in them, but she was out of luck. I have a picture of the two rolls (I have to double most of my recipes to feed my whole family) before I cooked them, but forgot about after shots.
I was in a hurry to meet my friends to scrap and didn’t take the time to repair the holes, but it made no difference in the end. At this point, I put them in the refrigerator for several hours. I’m not sure what the purpose of that step is, but I followed the directions. This was at 11:30 in the morning and I cooked them at 4:15 so about 5 hours fridge time. As I mentioned before, I forgot to slice them before I cooked them. UGH! I just noticed that I still need to fix the date/time stamp on my camera! (squirrel) They were slightly raw in the middle, but not enough to make you sick. A quick trip to the toaster oven and all was well (done). 4 of the 5 of us ate and I still ended up with a whole roll left over. I love leftovers. They make shopping day so much easier for me!
It was very quick, and easy to make, even the rolling it up part. From beginning to rolling up takes 10-15 minutes and then it cooks for 25-30 minutes, so about 45 minutes overall excluding the chill time. Just make sure your meat is thawed!
Monterey Jack Beef Rolls
1 1/2 lbs. ground beef
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 Tbsp. barbecue sauce (My choice is Sweet Baby Ray’s)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese
1/2 cup bread crumbs
2 Tbsp. chives
2 Tbsp. water
Combine meat, bread crumbs, BBQ sauce, eggs, and salt. Pat mixture into a 14×8” rectangle on foil or waxed paper. (I did it directly on my stoneware jelly roll pan and it was fine.) Combine cheese, bread crumbs, chives and water for filling; pat over meat mixture. Roll up jelly roll fashion starting at narrow end. Chill several hours. Slice into 6 servings. Bake at 350o for 25-30 minutes.
Serve and Enjoy!
I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
