1 lb. of ground beef, UNcooked
1/2 cup of pizza or tomato sauce
3/4 cup of grated mozzarella cheese
Italian seasoning to taste
salt and pepper to taste
dried Garlic-Garlic from Tastefully simple or garlic powder, to taste
6 strips of bacon, Uncooked
On waxed paper, press the hamburger into a 9x12 rectangle.I put the waxed paper into a jelly roll pan to make pressing it into a rectangle easier. Sprinkle on seasonings and spread on sauce and cheese. Starting at the long side, roll it up into a log. Cut into 6 pieces. Wrap each piece with a strip of bacon and secure it with a toothpick. Place the rolls on waxed paper on a cookie sheet and flash freeze till solid. Place in freezer bag and seal.
Remove as many rolls as you need. Thaw completely. You may broil them for 15 minutes, or grill them (this is the BEST way to cook them, I think). ENJOY!
You can make this recipe lots of different ways. You can add pepperoni, onions, etc. to your roll-ups before you roll the meat up. You can substitute BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese for the pizza sauce and mozzarella cheese. You could sprinkle on some Lipton's dry onion soup mix, or dried Ranch dressing mix to the plain beef,spread some A-1 sauce over the beef, add some blue cheese or your favorite cheese for "grown-up" beef roll-ups. The possibilities are endless.
