Campfire Philly Cheesesteak Sandwich (22)_thumb[1]

1/4 cup garlic butter {I make my own using butter and garlic powder}
2 cups cooked, sliced onion and pepper {I slice and cook this before camping then just pack the cooked mixture into the cooler.  Three sliced peppers, one sliced onion, 2 Tbsp butter or oil, 1/4 cup oyster sauce.  Saute and cook until pepper is cooked through.}
500g provolone cheese, sliced {Mozzarella would work too}.

Start by cutting slices into the bread about 1.5 inches apart and not all the way through to the bottom.  Butter the insides of each slice.

Next drop a large spoonful of the pepper mixture into each cut.

Top each slice with extra cheese.

Tip:  I like to spray the inside of the aluminum foil with non-stick cooking spray so that the ooey, gooey melty cheese doesn’t all stick to the inside of the packet.

 Wrap the entire loaf in aluminum foil.  You may need to use two layers to reach all the way around the sandwich.  Place the package near the hot coals of a fire {but not IN the fire}.  You want to heat the sandwich all the way through so that the cheese all melts.  This usually takes thirty minutes for us.  Alternately you can put it in a bar-b-cue on low or in the oven to warm the ingredients all the way through.

    Not sure how you can serve this the way its shown; seems like having every slice filled would make a huge mess out on the campsite. What I did to make this work was fill in every other slice; it made the loaf more a series tear-apart sandwiches. It took forever to heat up though, probably around 45 min if memory serves, but when it was done, it was all very well-contained and didn’t require utensils (of which there were a marked absence).

      Made this at home in the oven. Terribly hard to eat even at home. I recommend either cutting straight down the middle like a traditional sandwich or doing what the other reviewer said and filling every other slice. Flavor was very good though!

      You’re right, this is an impossible design to eat. The first time we tried it, it was a huge mess. The second time we filled every other slice and that worked out well, but as we were trying to stuff the slices we thought it would have been so much easier to just slice it lengthwise like a normal sandwich, put the filling in the middle and then slice portions after heating. You could slice in between the filled sections like some have suggested, but only if you left a large enough portion of bread between each filled slice. This tasted very good, but was a needlessly messy design.
