1 can tomato sauce
1 pound ground beef (80/20 or leaner)
1/2 cup uncooked white rice
2 tablespoons chopped canned chilies
2 tablespoons chopped sun dried tomatoes in oil
pinch of salt
1/4 tsp garlic salt
1 1/2 tsp beef bouillon
1 cup boiling water
1 package shredded mozzarella cheese (just about a cup)
Preheat oven to 350. Reserve to the side 1 cup of tomato sauce. In a large bowl, mix ground meat, rice, chilies, tomatoes, salt, garlic salt. Shape mixture into 6 patties about 1/2 thick. For thicker patties, make four patties. Place patties in an ungreased baking pan. Bake patties uncovered for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and drain. Dissolve beef bouillon in 1 cup of boiling water and stir in the remaining tomato sauce. Pour mixture over the patties. Cover baking pan and return to the oven and bake for an additional 35 minutes.
One more time, remove pan from the oven, spoon tomato sauce mixture from the bottom of the pan over the patties. Cover each pattie with shredded mozzarella and return to the over for about 5 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Serve with a hearty romaine salad and crusty french baguette!
