Who doesn’t love the delicious taste of philly cheesesteak? The only downfall to this popular recipe is that it is usually served as a sandwich that contains not-so-healthy components. This philly cheesesteak casserole has the same delicious taste as the traditional sandwich, but is much healthier, and of course, is made with wildgame meat. We hope you enjoy this unique spin on a well-known favorite!
