Broccoli Beef Braids

This filling sandwich looks fancy but is really simple to make. Each slice is packed with ground beef, broccoli and cheese. Served with a green salad, this beefy sandwich makes a terrific lunch or dinner. From Penny Lapp: North Royalton, Ohio. Recipe published in Country Woman July/August 1999
