Servings: 3
Total Time: 20 minutes
Recipe by: Frankie


1 pound ground beef
1 TBSP olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1/2 cup pickled peppers (I used pepperoncini), chopped
6 ounces mild cheddar cheese, shredded
3 6-inch hoagie rolls, warmed or toasted
salt & pepper
toppings: mayonnaise, mustard, shredded lettuce, tomatoes


1. Form the ground beef into 3 patties the same size and shape of your hoagie rolls. Generously season the patties on both sides with salt and pepper.

2. Heat a large cast iron skillet or griddle over medium-high heat.

3. When the skillet is hot add the oil and tilt the pan to coat evenly.

4. Add the patties to the pan and cook until well browned on both sides, about 3 minutes per side.

5. Top the patties with the onions and peppers. Using a spatula chop the onions and peppers several times into the patties while breaking up the meat. Cook 2 more minutes.

6. Top the patties evenly with cheese. Cover the skillet until the cheese has melted then transfer the meat to the hoagie rolls.

8. Top with lettuce, mayo, mustard, and tomatoes.
