Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich on Garlic Bread

Sometimes my wandering mind actually provides me with great ideas. The other day I was thinking about sandwiches and had an epiphony; garlic bread as the base of the sandwich. Boom. Why didn’t I think of this earlier? What is not to love about adding the deliciousness of garlic bread to a sandwich. I think I should get my food truck up and running asap before my genius ideas get stolen! 😉

This sandwich is super easy to throw together and the garlic bread makes it even better. My Philly cheesesteak may not be any better than the next guys, but I can assure you that this recipe with the garlic bread is!

    I am tooootally digging on the idea of garlic bread as the sandwich base! Cheesesteak sandwiches are one of the few things BF whips up for us every now and then – I will have to sneak this in as a suggestion for him the next time he cooks!

    This is a wonderful recipe but we used a Rosemary Garlic Bread from Costco and it was even better. We use the Rosemary Garlic Bread from Costco for all kinds of sandwiches, toast, and as a compliment to main dishes such as Pasta etc. It is the best garlic bread ever.

  12. Oh. Wow. I posted a recipe that was like this tonight! Honestly, yours looks even better-far more food truck worthy! I love the addition of the peppers. Mine just had onions…it was yummy but…now I’m jealous!
