Crumble the ground beef into the skillet. Season with garlic powder, salt, and pepper. d. Cook the beef thoroughly until browned, breaking it into small pieces as you stir.

  3. Assemble the Sandwich: a. Once the beef is fully cooked, separate it into 4 even portions in the skillet. b. Place 2 slices of American cheese over each portion. Let it melt slightly. c. Using a spatula, scoop up each beef and cheese portion and place it onto a hoagie roll.

  4. Add the Finishing Touches: a. Add your optional toppings like lettuce, tomatoes, pickles, and a drizzle of mayo or your favorite sauce. b. Close the sandwich, give it a gentle press to ensure everything melds together, and you're good to go!
