These Philly Cheese Steak Bombs are such an awesome game day snack- they are savory and delicious and so addictive, you’ll definitely want to make multiple batches!
Football season has officially started! J was thrilled to spend yesterday at the Bills season opener (gross) while I began plotting all of my tasty treats for the upcoming Sundays. Though I’m not a huge football fan (as you can tell I’m definitely not a Bills fan!) I am a fan of making delicious game day treats. So I figured I’d kick the season off right with these delicious Philly Cheese Steak Bombs.
These are everything that game day is about; savory roast beef, caramelized onions and bell peppers, mozzarella cheese all wrapped up in a tender package of bread! After I finished photographing them, J and I literally could not stop eating them. This says a lot, because J is not really a fan of peppers and onions (he said they’re not his favorite addition but he still enjoyed these. You can always leave them out if you have someone picky in your life like I do.).
In the future I might even try making these with mushrooms as well, but I left them out this time because I didn’t have any on hand. You’ll want to take your time and be patient when forming the dough around the filling, it can be a bit temperamental and is quite fragile. But once you get the hang of it, they’re not too bad- don’t scrimp on the filling!

- 1 Tbsp. of olive oil
- 1 small to medium onion, chopped
- 1 small green bell pepper, seeds removed and chopped
- A little more than 1/3 lb. of deli roast beef, roughly chopped (they came out to be around 1/2 inch pieces)
- 1/4 tsp. of garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp. Montreal steak seasoning (or the grill steak seasoning of your choice)
- 1/4 tsp. of Worcestershire sauce
- Shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 can of crescent rolls
In a medium frying pan, place your olive oil and the onions over medium heat. Stir them periodically and let them going for about 15 minutes of until caramelized. Make sure you keep the heat at medium or lower, or else they won’t caramelize.
Halfway through your onions cooking time, spray a large frying pan with cooking spray and start cooking your peppers over medium heat.
After a few minutes add the roast beef, garlic powder, steak seasoning and Worcestershire sauce. Saute for a couple minutes and then add your onions to the mixture and remove from the heat.
Place a spoonful of your meat mixture into each piece of crescent dough and sprinkle some shredded mozzarella cheese onto the mixture. Carefully pull all sides of the dough over the mixture and twist a bit to close all ends at the top. This should form a neat package.
Bake at 350 for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Enjoy!
