Slices of Tomatoes 

1/2 small chopped onion

All purpose Seasoning made up of salt, garlic, oregano and turmeric

1. For Hoagie Rolls Recipe :- In the bowl of stand mixer add 540g of Bread Flour, 12g of Kosher salt, 7g of instant dry yeast and 8g of improved texture and flavour, tiny whisk until homogeneous. 

Follow the Photo and Video Tutorial Guide below for better understanding.

2. Now add 120g of Whole Milk, 145g of Warm Water, Both heated to about 110°F and then add 1 whole beaten egg about 60g.

3. Then add 50g of Vegetable or Canola Oil and fix the dough hook, drop it down and let it knead it on medium low speed for about 8 to 12 minutes, we want really robust gluten development so that our bread has a nice chew to it.

We don't want it to be too soft or caky.

4. After complete kneading, stretch into a smooth taut ball and drop into a lightly greased bowl and cover it tightly with plastic wrap and let it rest at room temperature for at least one hour or upto two hour.

We want it to double in size by resting it.

5. Give the bottom of your bowl a nice tickle, punch it down until you have knocked out the air and then so we end up with four consistent hoagie. 

6. Weigh the whole batch of dough and divide it into four using math. Cut it into four vaguely rectangular pieces, press and stretch into less vaguely rectangular pieces. 

9 or 10 inches wide and about 6 inches long.

7. Then like mostly enriched bread, Roll and pinch it into a niche tight log, which we are gonna thoroughly pinch shut to make sure that there is no seam that can split open in the oven or during the rising process. 

8. Normally you'd wanna taper the ends of a sub roll but a hoagie has Characteristically flat front and back.

9. Dust some parchment paper and set in a rim baking sheet with semolina flour, plop loaves on top.

10. Cover them loosely with greased plastic wrap and let it rest for about 45 minutes to 1 hour until they are double in size.

11. Preheat the oven to 425°F with the rack in the lower third of the oven but before these guys head into the sauna, Brushing them with the mixture of equal parts beaten egg white and whole milk.

This is gonna give them nice glossy, bubbly top without too much Yellow colour. 

12. Hoagie rolls are usually either unscored or have a single slice along the top, i do recommend scoring them because this helps with oven spring.

13. Bake for 10-14 minutes rotating halfway through until they are puffed brown and their thickest point registers 190°F. 

14. Allow it to cool at least for about 2 hours and in the mean time, do finely shredded iceberg lettuce, relatively short shredded too.

15. Now few slices of beefsteak tomato and 1/2 small chopped onion and saute with the beef.

16. For Chopped Cheese Recipe, Chopped Cheese is usually made on a flat cast iron skillet. Grease it with little vegetable oil and heat over medium high or until just starting to smoke.

17. Now place hamburger patties and use third pounders and then add chopped onions, we are gonna let everything sit for about 3 minutes.

The only secret ingredient that i could find that bodegas use is a generous pinch of seasoning, 

18. Seasoning it with all purpose seasoning made of salt, garlic, oregano and turmeric and let it set for about 2-3 minutes.

Let that beef form a nice crust, let those onions get some nice light brown colour.

19. Chop up the beef with a heavy spatula as you can see in the image in the photo Tutorial guide below and mixing it in with the onions and continue sauteing until everything is nicely browned.

It should not take more than 2 or more minutes.

20. Organize the beef and onions into a long pile in the centre of the skillet, because it is time for this sandwich.

21. Now add 3 slices of yellow american singles cheese on it and let it melt completely and let the beef get a little crusty on the bottom and it is ready for further step and switch off the flame.

22. I highly recommend you lightly toasting your hoagie first and grab your very longest spatula because ideally you wanna try to get all the beef and cheese in one time.

23. Top it up with the sliced tomato, chopped lettuce and then standard condiments are healthy squirt of ketchup and mayonnaise and folks, that's about it.

The hardest part of this Sandwich is topping it up and trying to keep it all in one piece and fitting it in your mouth.

But the rewards for doing so are staggering, There is a good reason that this sandwich has gained notoriety outside of New York City in the past few years, it is a masterpiece. 

24. Finally our Homemade Chopped Cheeseburger Cheesesteak Recipe is ready to serve and eat.
