Less than 75 calories and very delicious! I used beech smoked salmon from Aldi, which is excellent value. This is so simple to make that it barely warrants a recipe, but I’m trying to compile a list of really low calories meals for my own use (lest I forget them) and thought others who are...

An Authentic Philadelphia cheese steak sandwich contains a bread roll (which I have omitted because I'd prefer lettuce...), thin-sliced or chopped ribeye steak, and (usually) Provolone cheese. The sandwich is a "trademark" in ways of Philadelphia. I have yet to eat a genuine one, though I've...
