Have you ever had a cheesesteak sandwich? Well, if we’re going to get technical, perhaps I should call it a Philly Cheese Steak sandwich, hmm? So have you ever had one? It’s one of my most favorite sandwiches, ever. I mean, how can I not love it? Steak, melted cheesy goodness… smothered in sauteed onions and peppers. Yum. I had my first cheesesteak sandwich from the Cheesesteak Shop in Berkeley. And then, when my mom and I were in Philadelphia some years ago, I had a cheesesteak in Philadelphia. Regardless of where I’ve gotten it from, it’s always been one of my favorite sandwiches. So why not try it in some other form like a casserole? Enter the easy cheesesteak inspired casserole!
Featuring most of the favorite flavors (for me) of a cheesesteak sandwich, this casserole was a huge hit.
It starts with ground beef, though next time, we’ll use steak.
Sadly, I was lacking an onion, but that will also be added next time. Still, even without the onion this was delicious.
And did I mention easy? This was definitely easy to make.
The ground beef mixture was seasoned with onion powder (since I didn’t have an onion handy), garlic salt, and black pepper. And while we didn’t have Provolone cheese around (my preferred for the cheesesteak sandwich), I found that white cheddar cheese melts wonderfully and tastes just as good in this casserole.
Next time, we’ll make a few adjustments but overall this was a definite winner in our home and another that I can safely add to the toddler approved rotation of meals. The leftovers were also delicious the next day after all of the flavors had time to sit and really meld. I would also be curious to see if I could recreate this in the slow cooker.
Do you have a favorite casserole recipe? Would you try this cheesesteak inspired casserole with your family?
