Ground beef roll with kidney beans

This was a very fun experiment, also my first time to do this. Since we are on tight food budget right now (New Year resolution), I have been searching for recipes that are cheap to make but still interesting. Depending where you shop (bargain hunt) it will come up to 6.50 CAD. And it’ s a big loaf, so probably good for 2 dinners for 2 people!edit-220140120_162124Ingredients:

500 g ground beef

1 onion

2 cloves of garlic

540 g white kidney beans

75 g of cheese *I just used up the leftovers from my rice balls

salt, pepper, spices

baking sheet

It will not take long to prepare, maybe 20 minutes.

Fry onions and garlic. I always like to fry it before adding to my food, but you can easily skip this step.

Put the ground beef into a stand mixer bowl, add onion, garlic, salt, pepper, spices and mix until it is thoroughly combined.

Put the ground beef onto the baking sheet and kidney beans and cheese on top of it,  and roll. It rolls very nicely, just use the baking sheet to do so.

Bake 400 F for about an hour. Take it out from the oven and let it set for 10 minutes.

edit We really loved it!
