Joey franchise sandwichI am a die hard Bengals fan and I always throw down on the BBQ during football season. My team is doing so well that I had no choice but to create a sandwich for my two favorite players, Joe Burrow and Jamar Chase. They have changed my Bengals forever and this sandwich is dedicated to them! Let’s get to it!

  • -The next day prep all of your veggies for sandwich, the bell peppers and onions. 
  • -Set your marinated steak cubes out of the fridge, and heat up your griddle.

Add the jack cheese, stir in and then add American cheese, the 3 pepper Colby and Vermont cheddar. After each cheese addition stir in for a min. Add milk as needed, tablespoon at a time. Once it's melted, add the garlic powder and chili powder and stir. Set temp on low and keep warm.
