Tonight I'm using 3/4 lb. of deli roast beef mushrooms red onion garlic olive oil provolone peppers spices of choice a little soy sauce while stir frying reducing liquids- till I get a 'seer' - cook @ 375 for 20min put some mozzarella on top of provolone- then up to 400 for 10min....mmmm..we love it!!!

That was interesting. Followed the recipe and yes it was a little bland. I did par boil the green peppers which you really have to do otherwise they will be pretty tough. So what's missing? Some flavor. As a quick fix we spooned a little bit of medium salsa on them which helped immensely. It does take things away from the philly cheese stake genre a little but it needed it. Make it again? Definitely. I will layer some extra provolone inside as well as a tablespoon or so of salsa in there. Read More

Love looking for a way to cut down on our bread intake. These were SO good and easy to make. My 11yo wasn't sure if he wanted to eat them but I made him at least try them and 10 minutes later his plate was pretty much licked clean. We just picked them up and ate them. I did not drain my meat after cooking them so they were a little greasy. next time I will drain first. One of hubbies favorites. Read More
