2-3 lbs ground sirloin or ground chuck
Kraft sliced American cheese
1 medium bell pepper
1 medium onion
1 jar Boston market brown gravy
1 15 oz can Hunt's tomato sauce
1 15 oz can Hunt's diced tomatoes
Minute Rice
3 tablespoons cooking oil
salt and pepper

Make thin hamburger patties (in even numbers two patties will make one hamburger).

Fold a piece of Kraft cheese into a square and place in the middle of one patty. Place another patty on top of the cheese filled patty. Knead together to make one big patty.

Dice onion and bell pepper, set aside. In electric skillet or large black iron skillet, add oil; brown hamburger patties on both sides, place on paper towels to drain.

Using the oil in the pan, make a thick brown gravy with flour and water, add salt and pepper to taste. Add jar of Boston Market Brown Gravy, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, chopped onion and green pepper, stir well and simmer for approximately 15 minutes.

Return hamburgers to sauce, cover and cook on low heat for approximately 1 hour, stirring frequently.

Make Minute Rice for the appropriate number of servings.

Place one hamburger on each serving of rice, cover with sauce mixture.

Goes well with fresh green beans or English peas and rolls.
