Philadelphia Cheese Steak Sandwich

Easy dinner on the cheap. Yep, this Philly cheesesteak sandwich takes no time at all to prepare and cost a little less than $3.50 per sandwich to make.

You can get all fancy with this, but I kept mine traditional and classic. I know, can you believe I didn’t tweak this ten times over, per my usual busy hands.

But these busy hands have been working more than my usual share on projects, while at times holding a baby in one and a whisk or camera in the other. The latter being a poorly thought-out and disastrous choice that ended up in nearly cracking one of lenses as I dropped my camera on the floor. Good thing I had a hood on the lens, that took  the brunt of the shattering, as for the lens it’s not the same, but it is functional.

And that is the theme these days when it comes to dinner – functional. Nothing fancy, and admittedly, maybe a tad under inspired in terms of personal spins,  but I’m getting there.  Along with that my fingers are flexing there way back to punched up desserts. So stay with me, because our regularly scheduled dessert programming around here will be back Wednesday.

    These look just like the sandwiches we had in Philly! My dad and I had flew in just to see a baseball game, and we asked the hotel concierge where to find the most authentic cheesesteaks in town. Yours brought back so many fond memories! :) Pinned!

    My boyfriend and I are headed to the US later this year, and I am cooking him some classics to help him fall in love with the US as much as I have (his first trip, my fourth) – this sandwich is exactly the thing that will have him falling head over heels before we even board the plane!
