  4. Place 2 to 3 slices of provolone on each hoagie roll (about 2 ounces total of cheese) and set aside.

    NOTE: If you want the cheese super melty, place cheese slices directly on the mounds of cooked meat and onion before placing roll on top.

  5. Heat flat-top griddle or frying pan over medium heat. Once hot, add 2 T avocado oil and diced onions (You may need to cook the onions / meat in 2 batches depending on the size of your griddle / frying pan.) Cook onions for 2 to 3 minutes until they are just beginning to brown.
