Long Boy Burgers

Long Boy Burgers. Have you ever heard of them? I hadn't. I happened across a recipe called "Long Boy Burgers" while flipping through my copy of Cook's Country. Very interested in new and different recipes, I read about the history of the Long Boy. In short, the Long Boy is a 1960's retro recipe that is much like an open-faced meatloaf sandwich, served atop a toasted sub roll or hot dog bun.

I knew I had to make this recipe for several reasons:
*We love meatloaf
*I wanted to use my brand new deli baskets and red checked liners
*it was quick, fun, easy and economical
*I had just made fresh homemade hot dog buns for my HBin5 group

Long Boy Cheeseburgers -adapted from Cook's Country Magazine
Serves 4 -8 **The Long Boys came out rather large. You could easily cut each Long Boy in half and have a very satisfying portion***(Be sure to spread the meat to the edges of rolls, or the bread will burn)
2 (6-inch) sub rolls split in half lengthwise
1-1/4 cups cornflakes, crushed
1/2 small onion, minced
1/3 cup whole or lowfat milk
6 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 large egg, lightly beaten
salt and pepper
1-1/2 pounds 90 percent lean ground beef
2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1. Toast Rolls - Adjust oven rack to upper middle position and heat oven to 450 degrees. Bake rolls, cut side up, on wire rack set inside rimmed baking sheet until golden and crisp, about 5 minutes.

2. Make Meat Mix - Combine cornflakes, onion, milk, 4 tablespoons ketchup, Worcestershire sauce, thyme, garlic powder, egg, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper in large bowl. Add meat and knead gently until well combined.

3. Bake Burgers - Top toasted rolls evenly with meat mixture, spreading meat to edges of rolls. Brush top of meat mixture evenly with remaining ketchup and bake until meat registers 160 degrees, 20 to 25 minutes. Top burgers with cheese and continue to bake until cheese melts, 3 to 4 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes and serve.

Results/Notes: This recipe was unique and fun! The kids loved the deli baskets and checked liners. The burgers were much like an open-faced meatloaf sandwich. All in all, it was a cute idea that made for a fun dinner. I really loved this batch of HBin5 dough. The soft sandwich bread was delicious and the hot dog buns were easy to form and baked up well. The soft whole wheat dough is definitely a recipe that I will enjoy over and over in my kitchen.

I recently joined up with a new group, hosted by Michelle of Big Black Dog, to bake my way through the Healthy Bread in Five Minutes a Day cookbook. Our challenge this time around was to make one recipe of Soft Whole Wheat dough, a great soft dough enriched with eggs. We were to make one loaf of Soft Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread, which I enjoyed with some peanut butter and jelly (my personal favorite). The bread was nice and soft and much more satisfying than that plain old white bread stuff.The other part of our challenge was to make either Hamburger Buns or Hot Dog Buns. Inspired by the Long Boy Burger, I chose the Hot Dog Buns and they worked perfectly in that recipe. Head on over the Michelle's site HERE on Feb 1st to check out any of the other bread bakers.

  21. A couple of people have asked about where I bought the plastic deli baskets and red checked liners. I got a set of 6 baskets on clearance at World Market for 99 cents, which was awesome. They happened to have a package of red checked liners for $5.99, but there were only 12 in the package.

    Tonight I did a search online and found a package deal over at You can get 8 plastic baskets, 2 squeeze bottles, and a box of 500 waxed paper liners. This is a much better deal than what I bought on clearance.

    The baskets and liners are so much fun to serve meals on and the best part is there are no dishes to wash:D

  22. The Long Boy Cheeseburgers might be perfect for the Super Bowl and I know the guys would just love them!

    I have a set of the plastic dinner baskets too, and I've had so many asking about them lately. Must be in vogue now..LOL!

    Your bread turned out wonderful with such a good rise!

  23. I'm loving this Sandwich Bread dough, too. I even made some of my own adaptations, and it still came out perfectly!

    No, I have never heard of a "Long Boy", but if there's meatloaf & sandwich in the same sentence, I am so there! Your breads are gorgeous!

  24. Never heard of a Long Boy before, but it sounds great- always looking for something new for the men folk. Your bread looks fabulous.

  25. I have NOT heard of a long boy but damn! That looks wonderful Kim!

  26. I have never had a long boy! I wonder if they make them in Texas!
    They look very enticing I must say!

  27. I've never heard of them either, but they look great! I agree, the soft ww bread will definitely be a staple at my house, too!

  28. I've never heard of a long boy either, but would try one with those buns! And the loaf..amazing.

  29. Sounds very interesting, looks great - I may have to try this one!!!

  30. Great pic of the fabulous bread!

  31. I had not heard of a long boy until I too saw it in Cook's Country, but my mother often did much the same thing--spreading some hamburger on a split bun and broiling it. She never spread the meat to the edge, so it got crispy/charred around the edges, but that was kind of good too.

  32. No, I hadn't heard of a Long Boy until now! I'm saving the recipe, I'm sure my hubby would love one. Thanks for sharing it and what a great use for the hot dog buns. Your loaf turned out beautifully!

  33. This is new to me but we are a meatloaf-loving family so I know this would be well-received! And your bread! Just mouth-watering goodness.

  34. What an excellent use of the HB in 5 recipe for this round. Those long boys sound amazing. I love meatloaf, and I don't care who knows it!

  35. I haven't either, I am glad you posted about them though because I think this is what we are having for dinner tonight! Yummy :)

  36. Your baskets and liners are so fun for pictures. I may have to get myself some. I have not heard of a Long Boy, but it looks delicious!

  37. Your bread looks delicious! Great job!

  38. Boy! That Long Boy Burger looks good! Your loaf looks wonderful too!

  83. Gina admits that part of her reasoning for moving into hedge funds
    is to protect towards downside losses. There are a couple of problems with this particular.
    1st, similar to each and every over confident general, she is preparing for the subsequent war by studying the
    final. The possibilities of yet another 2008 meltdown are trim.
    Background may repeat by itself although not that rapidly.
    Sure, she may restrict a 20% reduction to 18.
    These arrive about every single 20 years or so.
    But she is practically guaranteeing a 1% underperformance every 12 months.
    That annually underperformance is simply as harmful if not a lot more so.
    Nevertheless it shields Gina politically to
    limit the massive reduction, specifically inside the subsequent year or so just before she operates
    for governor. She doesn't need a large loss on her file. The truth that this method expenses hundreds of thousands in charges signifies absolutely nothing to her. In reality she's
    tried to hide these charges in the general public.
    Yes, it is true you do not want to chase returns.
    But you also never need to chase safety either.

    Subsequent the crowd is never ever the right issue to accomplish in investing.
    However it does provide political protect for Gina.
