Mini Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches for the Super Bowl

It’s 2:30 in the morning on a Tuesday, and I am crying uncontrollably. Why? Because onions. I love onions so much, but my eyes just can’t handle cutting them. I have tried every trick in the book, but nothing alleviates the burning sensation that takes over my eyeballs immediately after cutting through one. Sometimes I buy the pre-chopped onions at the grocery store just because I am unable to mentally prepare for the pain, but it’s like $3 more. And I needed a lot of onions for today’s recipe.

(Fun fact: The style of cutting onions in long strips is called Lyonnaise, named after the city Lyon in France)

As you all know, the Philadelphia Eagles are joining Tom Brady and his crew in Minneapolis for the Super Bowl. So I thought it would be appropriate to make Philly cheesesteak sandwiches in honor of the Eagles.

The Philly cheesesteak consists of (you guessed it) steak, green pepper, and onion. I wanted to make it as easy as possible, so I put everything on one baking sheet, and it turned out great. I think this method would also be good for steak fajitas as well.


Once the filling was prepared, I stuffed it into mini croissants with provolone cheese; placed them in a baking dish; brushed Challenge butter on top; and stuck it back in the oven for a few minutes until the cheese was melted. Delicious and easy!
