Did Somebody Say Toast?

Hey guys, I was preparing the evening meal tonight and as I was preparing the base for my operation, and I noticed that it looked like a piece of Texas toast. To those living outside of Texas, it may look like a GIGANTICALLY ENORMOUS piece of Texas Toast - but I would say that it was a regular to small-ish sized piece. So I had The Babe photograph while I bit.

This meal is called a Texas Sammy:
That Texas toast is from a Sourdough loaf, though we've also used a French loaf. There were other ingredients - bacon, chopped onions, ground beef, seasoning salt, butter, grated cheese, 1 can cream of mushroom soup, and about 10 oz. of sour cream.

Set your oven to 425 degrees and let it begin to heat. Cut the bread loaf in half and butter the tops. Set them top-up on an un-greased baking pan (cookie sheet). Cook the bacon and set aside for now. Cook the beef with the onions and some seasoning salt to taste. Once that the meat has been prepared, mix in the mushroom soup and the sour cream. Let the concoction simmer for about five minutes. For those five minutes, place the baking pan with bread, inside the oven to begin to toast the bread. Retrieve the hot pan and then move the beefy mixture to the tops of the semi-toasted bread loaf halves. Cover with cheese and crumbled bacon.
Put the Texas Sammy filled cookie sheet on the middle oven rack and wait for about 7-10 minutes - the wait may be longer or shorter - it is based on the bread loaf cooking and cheese melting times.

Oh yeah... the umpiring that I did on Saturday
is still bringing the pain to my legos.
