March 24th is National Philadelphia Cheesesteak Day, a day to celebrate the city’s iconic sandwich. The origins of the sandwich are debated, but it is comprised of thinly sliced sauteed beef and cheese (Philadelphians usually choose Provolone or American, almost no one gets Cheez Whiz!), served on a long roll from a bakery called Amoroso’s. Optional toppings include onions, peppers or mushrooms.
It’s difficult to find a good Philadelphia cheesesteak outside of Philadelphia, but to celebrate the day, you can try one of these 25 variations, which include appetizers and main dishes, from nachos to soup, and quesadillas to chili.
