Vegetarian Philly Cheese Sandwich

Traditionally this sandwich is made with meat(thinly sliced pieces of steak) and cheese stuffed in a long roll. But I ate vegetarian version of this sandwich at a mall and loved it . In vegetarian version, mushrooms along with peppers and onions are added as a substitute for meat. Mushroom has that meaty taste so they go pretty well in this sandwich.

4 hot dog rolls or hogie rolls
2 tsp canola oil
1 cup sliced white button mushrooms
1/2 cup sliced red bell pepper 
1/2 cup sliced green bell pepper
1/2 cup sliced onions
1 Jalapeno sliced into rings
4 slices Provolone cheese
Mayo or ketchup as required

First saute sliced mushrooms in a tsp of canola oil. Saute until nice and brown. To get perfect brown color spread them evenly without crowding in a pan. After mushrooms are nicely browned remove them on a paper towel. Add remaining 1 tsp oil and saute all the veggies until nicely charred but crisp to eat. Remember to add Jalapenos last while sauteing veggies. Mix together all the veggies and add salt and pepper.
Slit open the hot dogs or hogie rolls without tearing them apart. Lightly toast them in oven for few minutes. Now divide all the sauteed veggies into 4 parts on frying pan and keep cheese slices on each of them and let the cheese melt. 
Meanwhile spread some mayo or ketchup(whatever you like) on both the sides of toasted rolls. Pick up one part of veggies and cheese and arrange it on your roll and repeat for the remaining rolls and serve. Vegetarian Philly Cheese Sandwich is ready.

Quick Tips-: Never wash or soak mushrooms in water. Just use wet towel to clean the mushrooms thoroughly.
