French Cheeseburger Loaf

3/4 pound lean ground beef (90% lean)
1/2 cup chopped sweet onion
1 small green pepper, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 tablespoon ketchup
1 tube (11 ounces) refrigerated crusty French loaf
4 slices reduced-fat process American cheese product
1 egg white, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

1.In a large skillet, cook the beef, onion and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in the flour, mustard and ketchup; set aside.

2.Unroll dough starting at the seam. Pat into a 14-in. x 12-in. rectangle. Spoon meat mixture lengthwise down the center of the dough; top with cheese slices. Bring long sides of dough to the center over filling; pinch seams to seal.

3.Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Brush with egg white. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

4.With a sharp knife, cut diagonal slits in top of loaf. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm. 

I rolled out my dough wrong and so mine opened up in the oven. But it still tasted great.
