Philly Cheesesteak Sliders

I know that these do not sound super exciting and that they are not very original. But what they do have going for them is that they are freaking delicious. There was no intention of blogging about these when I made them, but they were so good that I had to grab the camera and take a couple pics to share.

I shop for our groceries every 2 weeks. It's how my parents did it when I was raised and now that I am in charge of food for my family, I do it the same way. Every two weeks I sit down and meal plan, it may sound like a chore to some but it is something I LOVE doing. One day I should really share how I do it, because it really works for saving money and eating healthy(ish). Anyway, I make a shopping list and rarely veer from it while at the store. These little sandwiches were part of my occasional veering...

I was planning on making the oh-so famous Funeral Sandwiches, that you have seen EVERYWHERE on Pinterest. They are a favorite around this establishment and were on the meal plan for a weekend lunch. However, when I went to buy ham - I had a sudden change of heart. The beef was calling to me. So these were created.

Although we had them for lunch, they would be a great appetizer or make-ahead lunch for busy weekends. Just prepare them up to the point of wrapping in foil and then place in the fridge until ready to cook.

What kind of fun things have you done with Hawaiian Sweet Rolls? I am just in love with them!!
