Feeling Cheesy? Hamburger Fun for the Weekend...

My husband makes the yummiest cheeseburgers ever, just ask him!  No they are great and he likes to get creative with different toppings and seasonings, which I love because I get the night off from cooking plus get a delicious meal.  He found this fun variation on the cheeseburger from Taste of Home, and I knew I had to share.  
What are you having for dinner?

Shopping List
1 pound ground beef
1 small onion, chopped (optional)
1 small pepper, chopped (optional)
2/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1/3 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup ketchup
1-1/2 teaspoons salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 cup shortening
3/4 cup milk


How do I make Cheeseburger Loaf?

In a skillet, cook beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain.

Add onion, cheeses, ketchup, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper; set aside. In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and remaining salt.

Cut in shortening until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.

Using a fork, stir in milk until mixture forms a ball.

On a floured surface, roll out dough into a 15-in. x 10-in. rectangle.

Spread meat mixture to within 1 in. of edges.

Roll up, jelly-roll style, starting with a long side.

 Pinch edges to seal.

Place seam side down on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake at 425° for 30 minutes or until golden brown.
