    I made these last night and they were very good. My husband said twice, "Very good sandwich, Honey", which means her really liked it or he wouldn't have commented at all. I think next time a little Worcestershire sauce should be added though. Thanks, Mandy, for another good one!

    Although not quite a cheesesteak, this was a nice, quick sandwich. I paired with soup on a cold night.
