Cheeseburger French Loaf

1 loaf of French bread
5 Tb. melted butter
3 Tb. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup ripe olives, chopped
1 tsp. Worchestershire sauce
1 egg
2 c cheddar cheese, grated
4 oz. Velveeta
1 1/2 cups milk

Break open a loaf of French bread along seam; remove soft center and crumble into a bowl.
Melt 3 Tb. of butter. Sift flour with salt and blend into hot butter.
Add milk slowly, stirring and cooking until smooth and thick. Add cheddar and velveeta, making a cheesy sauce. Remove from heat. Add Worcestershire sauce, egg, cheese, beef, olives and crumbled bread crumbs. Mix well. Refill loaf with meat and cheese mixture and press edges together. Rub outside of loaf with remaining 2 Tb of butter and sprinkle with a little garlic powder.  Wrap entire loaf in tinfoil and bake in 350 degree oven for 45 minutes.
Slice before serving.
Serves 6.

This is from the Idaho cookbook: Edwin Elkington. I found it burned if not wrapped and have changed just a few directions. If you grew up on hamburger gravy like I did, you will enjoy this.
The picture doesn't show olives, because I didn't think my kids would touch it.
I like to nuke cheese in microwave before adding to cheese sauce, just to speed things along.
