This cheesesteak soup recipe is perfect for the Big Game (Opinion)
Despite Governor Murphy lifting the indoor dining curfew on restaurants and bars and upping the capacity limit to 35%, many people will still be watching the game at home with or without friends. Either way, you know we'll be eating a lot.
According to new research from pickswise, the average American consumes up to 8,083 calories watching the Super Bowl. So why not get them all in one bowl of cheesesteak soup?
DJ Danny Pavone has been a colleague and good friend for over 20 years. He's so dedicated to tailgating that this past season, even though he couldn't go to the Eagles games, he would still tailgate on his home driveway, then go inside and watch his team lose. Now that's dedication! One of his more sinful recipes is his cheesesteak soup.
If you think it sounds delicious, wait until you taste it!
Here's how to make it:
You start with 3 lbs of chip steak, cook it overnight in a crockpot, Italian seasoning, pepper, 3 onions.
Then in the morning add half a gallon of light cream, 1 block of cream cheese, beef bouillon, 2 lbs of American cheese added in 1/2 lb increments every 30 minutes.
And for health purposes DJ Danny says, "add parsley to make it look healthy."
