Previously titled "Philly Firecrackers" - I didn't give them that name, that was the title given by Southern Living. That being said, I hope you enjoy these portable roll-ups as part of your Fourth of July Celebration or your next picnic! So delicious!!! from Southern Living Plan ahead -- Cooking time is chilling time.

Good sandwich, but I have lived in Philly for 50 years and have never heard of this sandwich. I doubt it is a Philly thing at all.

i agree with Papa Deuce. I am from the Philadelphia area and have lived there most of my life. . Maybe it should be renamed to a Roast Beef Firecracker. This sandwich is something I have not even heard of in the Philadelphia area. That being said, it looks like a delicious sandwich and one that I would really enjoy eating. My pet peeve is that everyone is calling something a Philly and most of these thingst are not even vaguely Philly.
