The next day, cook the meat and drippings in a skillet along with some banana peppers and onions. Place the meat on a hoagie roll, top with extra banana peppers, swiss cheese, and a little hot sauce.
  17. Remove Egg Shells EasilyWet your fingers before removing egg shells and grabbing the pieces the fell in the bowl will be a snap!
