Use It Up

In the process of planning dinner (read it...throwing dinner together) I took a look at what was in the fridge and discovered:
  Spaghetti sauce
  Hamburger meat originally cooked for sloppy joes
  Green onions (needed for Thanksgiving)
  Cheese (we always have lots of cheese)
  Bacon (aw, come on - you knew that)

And not much else.

BLTs would be easy but not in the mood.  Tacos, maybe but no tortillas.  I could make sloppy joes but that really wasn't doing it for me.  I'm not sure why I was in such a mood but this is what we did.

It's kinda of a cheesy hamburger sandwich.  I put about 3 tablespoons butter in a pan.  Diced a green pepper, onion and mushrooms.  Added the already cooked hamburger meat. Heated it through.  Sliced a loaf of french bread.  Topped with swiss cheese.  Put in broiler and heated spaghetti sauce in microwave.
Dinner in about 15 minutes.

Charlie's comment - it really taste like a cheese steak.  It's really good.

I dipped my sandwich in the sauce.  Charlie poured the sauce over the top of his.  You choose what way works best for you.

What do you have in your fridge that you can use to create dinner?

Have someone on your Christmas List that is difficult to buy for?  Consider chocolate.
