National Cheesesteak Day
Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always on March 24
Are you hungry? We certainly hope so, as celebrating this day is a real pleasure. Meal planning for the day is all set. As today is National Cheesesteak Day is today. This sandwich is best known as the "Philadelphia Cheesesteak" or "Philly Cheesesteak".
Hot dog vendors and brothers Pat and Harry Olivieri from Philadelphia, PA are credited with creating the cheesesteak sandwich in the 1930s. They created a grilled beef and onion sandwich on a long, soft hoagie roll. It became an immediate hit. It wasn't long before a taxi cab driver suggested to Pat Olivier that he quit the hot dog vending business and open a store to sell his popular sandwich. That's exactly what he did, opening "Pat's King of Steaks" restaurant. The original sandwich did not have cheese. Cocky Joe, an employee of the restaurant added melted provolone cheese. Grilled peppers also came later.
Celebrate today with a delicious and classical American sandwich for lunch, dinner or both of these meals!
