Ingredients

1/2
cup Progresso™ Italian style panko crispy bread crumbs
1
pouch (9 oz) Progresso™ Recipe Starters™ fire roasted tomato cooking sauce
2
sticks (1 oz each) string cheese
1
lb extra-lean (at least 93%) ground beef
1
egg

Directions

  1. 1 HEAT oven to 350°F. In large bowl, stir bread crumbs and 1 cup of the cooking sauce until well mixed; let stand 5 minutes.
  2. 2 CUT twelve 1/2-inch pieces from cheese sticks (store remaining portion of cheese stick for another use). Set aside. Add beef, egg, 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper to bread crumb mixture until well mixed.
  3. 3 SPRAY six (6-oz) custard cups or regular-size muffin cups with cooking spray. Divide beef mixture evenly among cups (cups will be very full). Push 2 pieces of cheese into center of each loaf. Place custard cups on cookie sheet to catch any spillover.
  4. 4 BAKE about 25 minutes or until thermometer inserted in center of loaves reads 160°F.
  5. 5 HEAT remaining sauce until hot. Immediately remove loaves from muffin pan; spoon heated sauce over loaves.
