How can we possibly discuss tailgating and the Philadelphia Eagles without bringing up the Philly Cheesesteak?

This one will be a classic long after we’ve transitioned to the eternal tailgating party in Heaven, but until then, how about a little ‘Heaven on Earth’?

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich

Mention John’s Roast Pork, Tommy Dinic’s, and High Street On Market to the Philadelphian, and everyone knows exactly what you’re talking about. Where else could we go to properly discuss the Philly Cheesesteak?

No further words are required for this one! Thank Food Insider for the visual. Visit their YouTube channel by following this link.

Philly Cheesesteak Pretzel Rolls

If you’re looking for an alternative, Philly Cheesesteak Pretzel Rolls will do the trick.

Let’s discuss the ingredients.

This one’s a little more involved. Be sure to begin early because this will take about 90 minutes to prep and another 20 or so to cook. Thank cookingforkeeps.com for the recipe.

  • Active dry yeast and 1 ½ cups of warm water
  • Four tablespoons of unsalted butter and 12 cups of water
  • One tablespoon of sugar
  • Two teaspoons of kosher salt
  • 4 ½ cups of all-purpose flour with a cup of baking soda
  • One egg and one tablespoon of water that has been stirred together
  • You’ll also need some sea salt for sprinkling

To prepare the filling, add the following.

  • 16 ounces New York Strip Steak. Ribeyes and Kansas City style will also work.
  • Add a large diced green pepper and two cups of shredded provolone cheese
