Cheeseburger Roll-Ups

Who says dinner always has to be fancy, healthy and PC? Not me; posh food has it's place, but that place is not after realizing I have almost no food in the house while four hungry kids stare me down menacingly.  My girls had a blast making the cheeseburger roll-ups and gobbled them up as soon as they were out of the oven.

8 oz (250 grams) minced beef (ground beef), raw
1/2 beef bullion cube, crumbled into powder
1 tablespoon dried onions or 1/2 small shallot, minced fine
8 slices sandwich bread, crusts removed
Non-stick (or olive oil) spray
Grated cheese of your choice

1) Mix the beef with the bullion cube powder and onion (or shallot). Set aside-- can be done up to 4 hours in advance and held in the refrigerator.

 2) Pre-heat the oven to 180C (375F). Roll the slices of bread with a rolling pin to get them very thin. Now roll the beef into 8 log shapes the width of the bread, place at one end of each slice of bread, line some grated cheese along side, then roll up and secure with toothpicks.  Repeat until all the rolls are made, then line them up on a baking sheet and spray with non-stick or olive oil spray.  Bake until slightly golden, about 30 minutes, remove toothpicks and serve.   Makes 8 roll-ups
