Y’all, I am a carb queen. Slap anything between a couple pieces of bread and I am in heaven.
Who doesn’t love a good ole grilled cheese sandwich? I know I do, and so do my kids.
This upgraded Philly Cheese Steak Grilled Cheese Sandwich will become a new favorite and is a perfect addition to add to your weeknight menu.
Philly Cheese Steak Grilled Cheese
Super basic ingredients and you can use whatever bread you prefer. We just love this Franz brand bread that is local to the PNW area.
In a skillet, add ground beef, diced green bell pepper, diced onion, salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Brown over medium-high heat without breaking up the meat too much.
After the meat is mostly browned, add Worcestershire sauce and adjust seasonings if needed. Remove pan from heat.
Spread butter on one side of 8 slices of bread.
In a cast iron skillet, grill pan, or griddle, lay buttered side of the bread down onto the pan, once heated.
Lay slices of provolone cheese on top of the bread. (In my case, I am using 2 slices due to the size of the bread.)
Add about 1/4 cup of meat mixture on top of the cheese.
Add more provolone slices.
Then top with the other slices of bread, buttered side up.
Cook for about 3-5 minutes, then flip to the other side and cook for an additional 3-5 minutes.
Repeat with remaining bread, meat, and cheese.
Cut diagonally and serve with fries, chips, or tater tots!
