Copycat Hot Buttered Cheesesteak


I grew up in Cleveland, Ohio.


Cleveland, Many Years Ago


It was a wonderful place to grow up and I left a piece of my heart there.



Of course, I didn’t grow up in the actual city of Cleveland.

I grew up in the western suburbs

with a beautiful forest in my backyard.

My memories are filled with family& friends,

Green Trees

Beautiful Rivers & Metro-parks.

Would you believe I slid down a waterfall just like this one,{if not this one}

on my bum when I was just a child? I don’t think it was this full but…BEST-DAY-EVER!!!

{and well worth the swimsuit I destroyed}

I remember Days spent at  Beautiful Lake Erie,

View inside The Indian Stadium Before Jacob’s Field{so, the one I remember} taken by Aly.C.Photography.


Family outings at Indian Games,

Cedar Point1

and many summers spent at Cedar Point.

I miss these things, but they made for a wonderful childhood,

some fantastic memories, & I wouldn’t change a thing.

I have also found that I miss certain foods.

Surprisingly, they aren’t even fancy foods.

The foods I miss most are simple, dare I say “kid foods”.

They are foods from certain chains that I don’t have access to anymore.

Mr Hero’s Back in the Day

Foods like donuts from Duncan Doughnuts, Cheesesteaks from Mr Hero’s, & A Reese’s Pieces Sundae from Friendly’s.

{I also miss certain foods my Grandma used to make but I will tell you about that another day}

Living away from “home” for almost 20 years now,

I have learned to cope.

That is why I developed my recipe for Hot Buttered Cheesesteaks,

to cope, & honestly, I like them even better than Mr Hero’s!

They are so yummy even my 14-year-old daughter who has never had Mr. Hero loves them.

There are only 4 ingredients unless you would prefer to add mushrooms & onions.

You start out by toasting the hogi buns.

{I know your admiring my well seasoned cookie sheets, yeah, they’re pretty awesome!  lol

I really need some new ones huh?}

Saute the roast beef , onions, & mushrooms in butter.

Remove the Meat {mushrooms & onions} from the pan & place it on one side of each hogi bun.

Cover them with Provolone Cheese.

And broil them again until the cheese is melted.

That’s it! All there is to it!

Easy as cheesesteak!!!  haha, I’m a nerd. ;)

I believe I am going to take the Reese’s Pieces Sundae on next….{I am such a sucker for that treat}.

you will want to be sure to come back for this one!
