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!

Ingredients

  • 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
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil

Directions

  1. Coat a non-stick skillet with olive oil.
  2. Turn the heat medium.
  3. Throw the sliced onion and sliced Anaheim pepper into the pan and sautee for about 10 minutes, tossing every 3 or 4 minutes.  
  4. While the veggies are cooking, split a Hoagie roll and put it on a plate.
  5. Form the ground beef into a long, flat patty, sized to fit the Hoagie roll.
  6. Indent the patty down the middle.
  7. Season the patty on both sides with salt and pepper.
  8. Remove the veggies from the pan.
  9. Add more oil to the pan, turn the heat to medium-high, and cook the burger for about 3 minutes on each side.
  10. Transfer the cooked burger to a plate to let it rest.
  11. Put veggies back in the pan and add Cheese Whiz.  Mix well until heated through.
  12. Put the burger on the Hoagie roll, and add the topping.
  13. 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. 
  14. Unwrap the sandwich and cut it in half.
  15. Watch the game.

Go Eagles!
