It's time for another Sunday Supper event and this event is for Big Game Day Party recipes, hosted by D.R. of Gluten Free Crumbley. While we don't watch a lot of football much anymore, we enjoy game day foods. In past years, we have gotten together with our friends and watched the Super Bowl together and snacked on all sorts of delicious foods. I think pizza and subs are quintessential game day foods, but I can also see Philly cheesesteaks being served up for a "main dish" when there's a crowd of hungry football fans around.

I wasn't a huge fan of Philly cheesesteaks until around 2010. Nick loves them and because I will never NOT make something just because I don't like it --- I ended up finding some recipes for cheesesteaks to try out. I didn't expect to like any of the recipes, but I was making them for him, not me. However, I DID find a recipe and I devoured my sandwich and went back for seconds. From then on, I haven't turned down a cheesesteak.

This particular recipe comes from one of my favorites - Ree Drummond! I swear I'm not super picky, but I don't really care for Velveeta. I didn't expect to be blown away by a Velveeta cheese sauce - especially over traditional provolone. But...I devoured my sandwich. The Velveeta is exactly what this sandwich needs. It was such a flavorful sauce and it had the perfect texture to go with the meat and veggies. I also just adore that there are three different colors of sweet peppers in this sandwich. It looks so pretty and colorful!

Do y'all eat a main dish for game day or do you snack on appetizers? 
What are YOUR favorite game day foods?

What you need:
  • 8 oz. White Velveeta, cut into cubes
  • 1/2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • Hot sauce
  • 6 Tbsp. salted butter
  • 6 whole wheat hoagie rolls
  • 1 1/2 lbs thinly sliced deli roast beef, sliced into thin strips
  • Italian seasoning
  • 1 yellow onion, sliced in thick strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced in thick strips
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced in thick strips
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced in thick strips
  1. Combine Velveeta, black pepper, cayenne, milk, and a few dashes of hot sauce in a small saucepan. Melt, stirring occasionally, over low heat. Keep warm while you make the filling and brown the rolls. 
  2. Melt 2 Tbsp. butter in a small skillet over medium heat. Open the hoagie rolls and brown them.
  3. Add 2 Tbsp. butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add roast beef with a few dashes of hot sauce plus Italian seasoning to taste and cook until heated through. Remove to a plate and keep warm.
  4. Add remaining 2 Tbsp. butter in the same skillet. Add onions and peppers. Cook veggies over medium-low heat until soft, about 10 minutes.
  5. Build sandwiches by adding roast beef to hoagies. Smother in cheese sauce. Then top with veggies. Serve immediately.
