Oven Toasted Cheese Sandwiches

This is the simplest way I have found to make a whole lot of grilled cheese in a short amount of time. The kids can even help with the preparation of these yummy sandwiches. Continue reading “Oven Toasted Cheese Sandwiches”

Smothered Pork Sandwiches

My family loves this dish. The ‘gravy’ can also be used on burgers to make what we call a ‘smothered burger’. This dish can also be served over rice or noodles instead of in buns.

Pork Sandwiches


  • 2-3 lbs pork loin, cut into thin strips
  • 4 T.butter or margarine
  • 4 T. oil
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 c. mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 1/2 – 2 c. beef broth
  • 2 T. Dijon mustard
  • 2 T. soy sauce
  • 3 T. cornstarch
  • 1/2 c. water
  • 8 – 10 hoagie rolls, or hot dog buns


Heat 2 T. butter and 2 T. oil in a large skillet. Add onion and cook until starting to brown, add the mushrooms and cook 3-5 minutes more. Remove from pan and set aside.

Heat the remaining butter and oil in the same skillet. Add small portions of the pork and cook until done. Cook the remaining pork in batches. Remove from pan and set aside.

Add the broth, mustard, and soy sauce in the same pan. Use the whisk to scrape up any little bits in the pan. Mix the cornstarch and water together and add to the pan. Heat until slightly thickened. Return the onions and mushrooms to the pan. Heat through.

Fill the buns with the pork and spoon the gravy mixture over the top.


You can also add the meat to the gravy before serving.


Crockpot Root Beer Pork

This is a new recipe to our menu planning. I hate shredding meat with a fork so I usually put the cooked meat into my bowl for the stand mixer and use the paddle attachment. I will put it on low and let the mixer ‘shred’ the meat for me. This works well for chicken breasts also. Continue reading “Crockpot Root Beer Pork”

Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

This one is a hit at my house. It does take a little extra time and it costs a bit more than our normal meals so I only make it about once every 3 months or so.

Here is a link for a crockpot version that I haven’t tried but probably will the next time this pops up on my schedule. Continue reading “Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches”

Meatball Sandwiches

Guess what we are having for dinner? Meatball sandwiches… yum! This is a huge hit with the kids. So easy to make and most of the ingredients can be found on sale every few weeks. (Most of these were found at Dollar Tree last week.) Continue reading “Meatball Sandwiches”
