"This is grilled and makes a nice meatloaf shape that can be carved into slices as an elegant grilled dinner item with a sauerbraten type of gravy or made into German burgers by serving on a bun, with an extra slice of swiss melted on top. It's different, to be sure, but in a good way, and it is delicious and all my family enjoyed."

My husband had the roll without any cheese on top. I had cheese on top for a burger. I think the cheese on top added a lot of flavor. He liked it better with none on top. But we both liked it! Thanks
