Crazy-Good Philly Cheesesteak Bombs

Philly Cheesesteak Bombs
Take your favorite deli classic to the next level with these cheesesteak “bombs!” MORE+ LESS-

When it comes to deli sandwiches, I’ve learned there are some pretty passionate people out there. I’ve made my fair share of classics with a twist like my Reuben Pizza Roll and my Chili Cheese Dog Bake, but when I made a Philly cheesesteak spin-off, I get all sorts of comments. Apparently, a true Philly cheesesteak does NOT include bell peppers. 

So when I got the urge to stuff all the goodness of a cheesesteak into a flaky biscuit, wrap it in bacon and then fry it until golden brown, I made sure to leave the peppers out. That’s not to say that you have to leave the peppers out. I’m all about sneaking in more veggies whenever I get the chance. 

These fun “bombs” are super simple to make and can easily be a tasty appetizer for Game Day. It’s also a perfect way to use up any leftover steak in the fridge.

I used some precooked steak strips you can buy in the deli section of your grocery store. Just sauté some onions, and toss in the steak to pick up all the good flavors of the onion, then place the steak mixture on top of a flattened biscuit.

Bring the sides of the biscuit up and over the filling and then pinch the seams closed. Wrap a strip of bacon around it and secure with a toothpick.

Fry the “bombs” until golden brown and serve right away. The cheese inside oozes out and is like a little flavor bomb in your mouth!
