Philly cheesesteak stuffed peppers

While perusing Pinterest not long ago, I noticed a photo of this brilliant idea, an idea so brilliant that I couldn’t believe no one had ever thought of it before. It was labeled “Philly Cheese Steak Stuffed Peppers”. And from that moment on I knew I had to have them.

Of course, my idea of the perfect Philly cheesesteak is a little different. My favorite version is from a little shop in a strip mall near Lenox Square in Atlanta. Actually, I have no idea if the strip mall or the shop is even there anymore. I remember being in middle school and going down for back to school shopping. One of the highlights of the trip was going to this cheesesteak shop for their Pizza Cheesesteak. Layers of yummy beef, onions, peppers, provolone, with a bit of marinara mixed in.

In college, when I was still able to find Steak Ums, this is the way I would always make my cheesesteak sandwich. So I knew my recipe would have to include the marinara, and I’m glad it did. (more…)

Recreating: The Italian BMT (only better!)

Italian BMT

As the holidays approach, life is probably a bit hectic and you’re looking for something quick and easy to have for lunch or dinner. While you could run out to the local Subway, last time I did that I was so disappointed by the lackluster flavor of a sandwich I used to adore, the Italian BMT. A quick pass through the local grocery store, though, and I have all of the makings to put together one quickly at home. (more…)

Recreating: the Pizza Sub

Pizza Sub

A couple of weeks ago I was craving an Italian BMT from Subway. So off to Subway I went, a place I hadn’t been to in 8 or 9 years, to get the sandwich I so loved. Luckily, footlong subs were on special for $5, because I about had heart failure upon seeing the normal price was $9 (yes, apparently I’ve become the old person who can’t believe how much things cost now).

I came home, opened up my sandwich, and blech! While it wasn’t bad, it was tasteless. I’m not sure if my tastes have changed, or their food has become more bland, but needless to say, it’ll probably be more than another 8 years before I think about trying Subway again. However, I still had the nagging craving for a BMT, so I went to the store and procured the ingredients to make my own.

What does this have to do with the Pizza Sub? Well, the Pizza Sub was my other favorite Subway sandwich. If I wanted a cold sandwich, I went with the BMT; if I wanted a hot sandwich, the Pizza Sub was my go-to. The night after having a BMT, I realized I had all the makings for a Pizza Sub, so into the kitchen I went. (more…)
