Recipe Steps:

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  2. Prepare the Bread:
    • Halve a crusty baguette or Italian loaf lengthwise and place it cut-side up on the prepared baking sheet. Brush the cut sides with melted butter. Set aside.
  3. Cook the Beef:
    • In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Add 1 pound of thinly sliced beef, season with salt and pepper, and cook until browned and cooked through, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from the skillet and set aside.
  4. Sauté the Vegetables:
    • In the same skillet, add 1 tablespoon of butter. Add 1 large thinly sliced onion, 1-2 thinly sliced bell peppers, and 1 cup of thinly sliced mushrooms (if using). Sauté until the vegetables are tender and caramelized, about 5-7 minutes. Add 2 minced garlic cloves and cook for an additional minute.
  5. Assemble the Cheesy Bread:
    • Evenly distribute the cooked beef over the buttered bread halves. Top with the sautéed vegetables. Layer with slices of cheese (about 8-10 slices of provolone or your preferred cheese).
  6. Bake:
    • Bake in the preheated oven for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and the bread is crispy.
  7. Serve:
    • Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Garnish with fresh parsley or green onions if desired. Cut into slices and serve immediately.

Storage Options:

  • Refrigerate: Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat in the oven or microwave before serving.
  • Freeze: Wrap the assembled (but not baked) cheesy bread tightly in plastic wrap and aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and bake as directed.
