Broiled Roll-Ups ***


(luckymommyto2boys ~ Amy ~ via

1 lb ground beef, uncooked
½ cup pizza sauce (or tomato sauce)
¾ cup mozzarella cheese, grated
6 slices bacon

Assembly and Freezing Directions:
On waxed paper, roll the hamburger into a 9x12 rectangle. Spread with sauce and cheese. Starting on a long side, roll it up. Cut into 6 pieces. Wrap a piece of bacon around each and secure with a toothpick. Place rolls on waxed paper on a cookie sheet and flash freeze until solid. Place in a freezer bag and seal.
Cooking Directions:
Remove as many rolls as you need. Thaw. Broil 15 min. or grill. (Editor's note: Make sure the ground beef is thoroughly cooked. Carefully make a slash into the meat with a sharp knife. Make sure the meat juices are clear, not pink.)
You may also add slices of pepperoni before rolling the meat. You may make these BBQ flavored instead of pizza. Substitute BBQ sauce and cheddar cheese for the pizza sauce and mozzarella.
These are great for grilling. If you are in a hurry, you can microwave them for a few minutes before placing on the grill or boiler.
Yield: 6 servings
