These beefy torpedoes sandwich recipe has been a family favorite forever. When I was a young wife, a friend had given me this recipe. I have altered it with additional spices to enhance the flavor and decided to share it on the blog.
Loaded with ground beef, cheese, olives and seasonings, these beefy torpedoes will soon become a favorite at your house too!
This is an easy combination of ingredients which makes a great tasting meal. Just fry up some ground beef, onions, garlic, seasonings, salt and pepper, then drain the grease. Return to pan and add tomato sauce, black olives, and cheese. Stir to mix really well and then spoon into rolls. Cover with top piece of bread, wrap in foil and bake until heated thoroughly.
I didn’t have any french rolls when I made these beefy torpedoes this time and ended up using a large loaf of french bread. Making these with individual french rolls are best giving them the “torpedoes” name. Make sure to get the rolls that are not pre-sliced. That way you can just slice the top off, remove the inner bread and fill with meat mixture. The pre-sliced bread doesn’t work well for this recipe.
The meat mixture inside each roll, and the juice that has soaked into the bread, makes for one great tasting sub, and then with a crunchy outside, oh man, super delish!

What kind of olives? Black, green, kalamata, something else? I’ve only seen black olives in cans of chopped olives, so probably them, I’m guessing….
