Philly Cheesesteak Sliders

Seems like we are running too fast these days
to do much blogging.

I am sure many of you have heard of 
Mormon Mommy Blogs, 
this Mormon Granny Blogger has 
had a lot happening!

Those who follow me on Instagram know that
my daughter had her baby two weeks early, 
but then suffered from post-partum pre-eclampsia.

We hadn't known anything about this, except 
from watching Downton Abbey, when Cybil 
died of eclampsia during child birth.  

We were scheduled to leave on an African Safari 
a week after her due date, so now I had three 
weeks to help her try and get stable.  This was 
her first baby, and pre-eclampsia is common with 
first babies, but they need to get the baby out. 
She wasn't progressing, so the baby ended coming 
C-section.  That was easy compared to the struggle 
with post-partum  pre-eclampsia.  The day after she 
got home she started being nauseated, and unable 
to eat or keep food or medicines down.  Her blood 
pressure was sky-rocketing to stroke levels 
multiple times a day.  She lost 35 pounds in 12 days, 
and they really didn't know what to do to help her. 
She ended up on 2 blood pressure medicines, 2 anti-
nausea medicines and 2 stomach medicines.  

We finally went to another doctor, as we didn't feel 
like she was being taken seriously by her OB/GYN.  
He ordered a CT scan and said if she got worse 
to take her into the ER.  Well, she got worse that 
night, throwing up volumes when she had only 
had a sip.  They kept her for 24 hours, got her on 
IV solution with her meds in the solution, and then 
sent her home on clear liquids.  I had been staying 
with her and her husband this entire 2 1/2 weeks and 
we had pretty much decided we weren't going to be 
going on Safari.  She got home from the ER Thursday 
night and we were to leave Monday morning.  She 
wasn't nauseated and didn't throw up that whole day, 
now that she could get some of the meds through her 
system.  She even wanted to leave the house Friday night. 
Many prayers were answered, and we felt confident 
going by Monday afternoon.  Baby and parents did 
great while we were gone.  

She came over the other day and we decided to make 
some sliders for my other daughter, who is expecting 
and is just curled into a ball, she is so nauseated.  She 
has tried two anti-nausea medicines that can be used 
during pregnancy, so she is really struggling.  We all love 
sliders for entertaining and have used this recipe for 
Ham and Swiss Sliders over and over.

We decided to try some different sliders, as the 
husband of the daughter who was helping me 
had mentioned he was wanting to try a new
variety (as daughter #2 makes the Ham and Swiss
all of the time!)

I had already purchased the ham and swiss, but 
we started looking for things we had in 
the fridge and freezer.

I usually have some of this 
Philly Cheesesteak Meat in the freezer, from Wal Mart.

I just used my recipe for Philly Cheesesteaks and topped 
them with a touch of garlic butter.  We made 24 sliders 
and were able to bring some to the family of my 
pregnant daughter, send some home with my daughter 
with the one month old, and have enough for hubby and me. 

They really are easy and great for a crowd.

Philly Cheesesteak Sliders

12 King's Hawaiian Sweet Rolls
(or any small roll, but there is something about King's!)
1 14 oz pkg Philly Steak Meat
Montreal Steak Seasoning or salt and pepper
8 oz cream cheese
6-8 slices Provolone Cheese
(sliced mushrooms, onions and green peppers if desired - 
I was making them for families with little children,
so we left those ingredients out.)

1/3 C. melted butter
1/4 tsp. granulated garlic
1/4 tsp. Italian seasoning

In large frying pan brown the meat and 
season.  I like to season this with Montreal 
Steak Seasoning.  If you are doing the mushrooms,
onions and green peppers, saute them in another pan.

Cube the cream cheese and mix into meat, heating 
through until the cream cheese is blended in.  
Add the veggies if using them.  

Slice the entire package of King's Sweet Rolls 
horizontally and lift the tops off in one piece.

Spoon the meat mix on the bottoms of the 
Sweet Rolls.  Layer the cheese on, overlapping 
where necessary.  Lay the tops of the rolls on.

Mix the melted butter with the garlic and 
Italian seasoning, then brush on the rolls.

Cover with foil and place in a 375 degree oven.  
Bake for about 15 minutes or until the cheese is melted.

They are best served straight out of the oven, but they do 
heat up well.  Even the little four year old loved them 
for dinner that night.  We all got excited to try Pizza Sliders, 
Buffalo Chicken Sliders, and more.  These are great for 
family meals, but we have used sliders for parties too, 

I am saving my Safari post for our Tales With 
the Traveling Totes, which comes out on December 1st, 
but you can see some of the 
fun on my Instagram!

Thanks for dropping by.  Leave a comment

Chocolat - French for Chocolate. I adored chocolate from a young age when I had to sneak in the cupboard to find where my mother had hidden the Nestle's Chocolate Chips. Having read about the famous chocolat shoppes in Paris, when I finally got there I was determined to try a chocolate from every Paris shoppe. I invite you to share my adventures in creating, in travel, and in life.
