Cheesy Steak Cups

Delicious little cups filled with steak and cheese. Goodness in a bread cup. Quick to grab for on the go. Freezer friendly too.

Cheesy Steak Cups - Cheese steak in a cup. Individual grab and go portions.

If you’ve been hanging around a little while you know I’m a Philly girl. I just got done trying to express my love for pretzels last week.  I’m not sure if I did that well. But I  hope you gathered that Philly and pretzels go hand in hand.

But do you know what Philly is really famous for? Come on. I know you got this one! It’s cheese steaks. Well here’s a cute little twist on the cheese steak. It’s all the goodness of a cheese steak wrapped up in a little bread cup. And we all also know how much I love to bake bread. So this was one was just waiting for me to create it.

A few reasons to love them.

1. Great taste of a Philly cheese steak.

2. Convenient, individual size.

3. Grab and go for dinners in a jiffy.

4. Easy to reheat. When’s the last time you had leftover cheese steaks though?

5.  Freezer friendly. Have extras? Freeze them for later.

Need any more reasons? I’ve got em. But I’ll spare you the words. Just do yourself a favor and make them. You won’t regret it. Well, maybe you will if you can’t eat just one. No guarantees.

In that case, I’m totally not responsible for this recipe. I’ll just fess up right now. I can’t eat just one of these either. So we’ll just call it the 2fer club. Many openings available. Feel free to join.

There’s one thing that I get hung up on though about cheese steaks. What is it exactly that I love? The steak, the cheesiness, the bread?  I’ve decided what’s not to love. I’m a cheese steak lover for life. Maybe you are too.

Til we meet and eat again,
