It was pretty easy to invent an Eagles inspired burger – Philly is all about the cheese steak! I make mine with a thin beef patty, quickly seared on the stove top. Then, to fully capture that cheese steak vibe, I top it with sautéed onions and peppers, smother it in Cheese Whiz (Gotta use the real stuff!), and serve it up on a hoagie roll. Pro Tip – Wrap it up in foil or wax paper for a few minutes to allow the roll to soften a bit and adsorb some of those juices. It really helps with the texture and combining all those flavors. Also make sure to try other "cheesesteak" ingredients - mushrooms, jalepenos, etc...in your version. Go Eagles!
- 1 Hoagie roll
- 8 ounces of ground beef
- Half a yellow onion, sliced
- 1/3 of an Anaheim pepper, sliced
- 2 Tablespoons of Cheese Wiz
- olive oil
- Coat a non-stick skillet with olive oil.
- Turn the heat medium.
- Throw the sliced onion and sliced Anaheim pepper into the pan and sautee for about 10 minutes, tossing every 3 or 4 minutes.
- While the veggies are cooking, split a Hoagie roll and put it on a plate.
- Form the ground beef into a long, flat patty, sized to fit the Hoagie roll.
- Indent the patty down the middle.
- Season the patty on both sides with salt and pepper.
- Remove the veggies from the pan.
- Add more oil to the pan, turn the heat to medium-high, and cook the burger for about 3 minutes on each side.
- Transfer the cooked burger to a plate to let it rest.
- Put veggies back in the pan and add Cheese Whiz. Mix well until heated through.
- Put the burger on the Hoagie roll, and add the topping.
- Wrap the sandwich in foil or wax paper for a few minutes. This will allow the roll to soften and absorb all those juicy, meaty, cheezy flavors.
- Unwrap the sandwich and cut it in half.
- Watch the game.
