Cheesy Mummy Bread

Onions and Peppers and Beef! Oh my!! Think of this as an open faced sub of sorts made with ground beef, strips of sweet peppers and onions, and wrapped in a blanket of cheese.

1 lb lean ground beef
1 medium green bell pepper, cut into bite-size strips
1 medium red bell pepper, cut into bite-size strips
1 small onion, cut into thin wedges
1/2 cup creamy Italian dressing
1 loaf (1 lb) Italian bread (12 inches long), halved lengthwise
4 slices (6 oz) thinly sliced provolone cheese, quartered

Set oven control to broil. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef, bell peppers and onion over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Stir in 1/4 cup of the dressing.

Spread remaining 1/4 cup dressing on cut sides of bread. Place both halves, cut sides up, on ungreased large cookie sheet. Broil with tops 4 to 6 inches from heat 2 to 4 minutes or until lightly toasted. Remove bread from broiler. Spread beef mixture on cut halves of bread. Top with cheese.

Return to broiler; broil 4 to 6 inches from heat 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut each half into 2 pieces.
