EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

*All breads made with at least 8 grams whole grain. At least 48 grams whole grain recommended daily.

The Philly cheese steak sandwich originated in Philadelphia in the 1930s. Thinly sliced beef is layered on a French or Italian roll and topped with American cheese and sautéed onions. The classic has been modified to include other cheese varieties such as Cheddar or provolone.

In place of the regular roast beef, try Cajun- or Italian-seasoned roast beef from the deli. Or if you prefer, use sliced cooked turkey.

This fresh take on Philly’s foodie claim to fame layers the traditional sandwich stuffings on a chewy whole grain crust instead.
