How To Make Our Easy Chopped Cheese Sandwich Recipe:
To start these delicious sandwiches, slice open all of the hoagie rolls.
Then in a large skillet, heat up 1 tablespoon of butter over medium high heat.
Once the butter is melted, place the hoagies on the skillet to toast the inside surface of the hoagie. This should take about 2-3 minutes to become slightly golden brown, then set them aside.
Now, add the rest of the butter to the pan and saute the diced onions until they are translucent, just about 3 minutes or so.
Then move the onions to the side in the pan and add the ground beef in the pan like one big patty.
Allow the meat to brown for 3-4 minutes without breaking it up.
Then season the meat with salt, pepper, and garlic powder and then flip the large patty over to sear the other side of the meat and allow it to continue to keep cooking for another 2-3 mintues.
After 2-3 minutes, begin breaking up the meat with a spatula and start to include the onions back in with the meat.
Continue to chop and cook the meat until the meat is no longer pink.
Then divide the meat into 4 different portions in the pan and then top each portion with 2 slices of cheese.
Allow the cheese to melt while it sits in the skillet.
Now get your hoagie rolls and spread the mayonnaise and ketchup on the inside of the bus, and then top it off with the beef and cheese mixture.
Then finish off your sandwich with your favorite toppings and then serve!
