Cooking the onions and peppers over the campfire filled our campsite with a mouth-watering aroma that was drawing nearby campers to our site just to see what we were cooking.

    How many servings (or sandwiches) is this? I’m potentially feeding 8 so I want to make sure I get enough ingredients (especially the roast beef).
