READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by paulamatt

Frank Blandi operated the Lemont Restaurant on top of Pittsburgh's Mount Washington. Looking down, he could see Devonshire Street. It worked out to be a good name for a sandwich!

This is the best. The sauce recipe is for making 6-8 sandwiches (open face). That is why the nutrition facts are out of line. You really need to stir the sauce while it is cooking. I make 6 in a 13x9 pan then scoop out onto a plate. Funny, everyone complains about how much fat is in this dish while they are licking the plates clean ;-) Enjoy!
