I had a French bread loaf and decided to use it for cheese steak sandwiches. Cheese steaks for preschoolers? Heck yeah!
I made them open faced for easier/neater handling by scooping out the middles of the bread slices.
I diced red, yellow and orange peppers and sauteed them in olive oil until caramelized.
I put the peppers and meat together and lightly diced it all with my chopper.
After putting the meat mixture into the center hollow of the bread slices, I topped with a 5 cheese Italian blend and broiled until melted and just browning.
This was a new recipe, so I wasn't sure how it would go over. Two of the little ones didn't eat much of it, but they ate more than I thought they might, being my pickier eaters. The others finished off 2-3 half slices each and gave them an excellent rating.
With the meat already cooked, this is a quick meal to put together, and with the abundance of peppers, rich in nutrition.
