Cut fresh lemon into quarters and squeeze over salmon strips. Slice fresh mushrooms into thin slices and spread over salmon strips and onto bottom of oven. Slice fresh green onions into thin slices and spread over salmon and onto bottom of oven. Drop small chunks of creamed cheese onto salmon strips. Top with lemon slices for color and presentation.

Barbecue Meatroll


  • 4 pounds ground beef
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 4 eggs
  • 3 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 1 small green pepper
  • 8 oz. mushrooms
  • 1 garlic clove (crushed)

Barbecue Sauce
Mix together:

  • 2-8 oz cans tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

Pat meat out on Saran wrap, aluminum foil or a cookie sheet. Use the rolling pin to roll it out to a rectangle about 1/2 inch thick. Place diced vegetables on top of rectangle. Remove Saran wrap or foil if you used it. Roll meat and vegetables as you would a cinnamon roll. Place in an aluminum foil lined 12 inch Dutch oven, if you had to make a seam in the foil, make sure the seam is down. Bend the meal roll to fit the Dutch oven if necessary. Bake for 15-20 minutes and baste with 1/2 of the barbecue sauce. Bake another 15 minutes. Add the remaining sauce. Bake for approximately 1 hour with coals on top and bottom.
