A note about serious food allergies

This melt has everything: more mozzarella, more mushrooms, and more mouthwatering than any melt this side of the Mississippi. (Or the other side!) Steak strips and mushrooms are sautéed together, then fill a pretzel bun topped with melty mozzarella and a zesty horseradish sour cream. The BBQ wedges on the side pull the entire delicious dinner into divine status. Sometimes even we get annoyed with all this awkward alliteration, but it's worth it in the service of such a marvelous meal.
