Making The Best Philly Cheesesteak Cheesy Bread

You can make this Philly cheese steak cheesy bread to suit your tastes, here are a few more options:

  • Cheese: The recipe calls for Provolone, but you can use any cheese you prefer. Just don’t use Cheez Whiz in this recipe, it won’t cook as well on high heat.
  • Steak: The more tender the cut of meat, the better your end product will be. I use Ribeye, but skirt steak would also work really well. Just avoid really tough cuts of meat or you will end up with very chewy pieces of meat.
  • Marinating Meat: Marinating your meat in sauces like Worcestershire, balsamic vinegar, and soy sauce help to break down connective tissue in meat and make it extra tender- perfect for sandwiches.
  • Adding Mayonnaise: The mayonnaise on the bread adds a lot of flavor and helps the end product stay moist and creamy, I would not skip it.

Storing Your Cheesesteak Cheesy Bread

  • In the Refrigerator: Store your Philly cheese steak cheesy bread in either an airtight container or wrapped tightly in plastic wrap. It will last for up to 4 days.
  • In the Freezer: Your cheesy bread can be kept in the freezer for up to 3 months in an airtight container.
  • Reheating: To keep your bread from getting soggy, I recommend reheating your Philly cheese steak cheesy bread in the oven for 15-20 minutes at 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Wrap your bread in tin foil before cooking.

    1. SO good and SO easy for you to make! I hope you enjoy it like we did!

      Your Recipe Critic,
      Alyssa

    1. I have never tried anything other than mayo. It may alter the taste to the recipe but this is what I found that works to substitute for mayo:
      Mix plain nonfat yogurt + mustard (honey mustard, Dijon mustard, horseradish mustard, etc.) for an even tastier mayonnaise substitution! Also, mixing a small carton of plain yogurt and mustard together makes a substitute for mayo. Hope that helps!! Good luck and let me know how it turns out!! Xo

    2. I would try using alfredo sauce….just a little bit. I use that when I make steak and cheese pizza:)

  1. 5 stars
    This recipe TOTALLY works!!! Easy too. I made it for myself, so the yield will last me for awhile as I ended up freezing the other bread half.

    My only recommendation is to keep the oven time around 10 minutes unless you really love a super crispy French loaf and a bit of a char on the melted cheese on top…then go 13 to 15 minutes.

    Using a Ribeye steak…freezing it a little….then using an electric knife to get wafer thin steak slices was key to how easy it was to saute in the cast iron pan per the recipe directions. 8 oz didn’t seem like a lot until I mixed it in with all those veggies. It was plenty.

    This was very good, I used skirt steak. Only complaint is that this could never make 12 servings except maybe as an appetizer. Makes 2-4 servings as a meal.

  4. 5 stars
    I made this for my family. This recipe was so easy and so good! I have a VERY picky family. I did have to leave the mushrooms off because they refuse to eat mushrooms. I also had to put the mayo on when they were not watching. They never knew it was baked with mayo and THEY LOVED IT. 10 out 10!

  5. 5 stars
    This was an easy and quick recipe that tasted really good! I used whatever cheese that I had in the refrigerator which included swiss, mozzarella, and pepper jack. Will definitely make again!

  6. 5 stars
    Made this tonight and it was a hit! I used ground beef because I neglected to put ribeye on my list. Turned out great. I can’t wait to try it with ribeye.
