This is the third in a series of Sheet Pan Meals that I dreamt up to help you get great grub on the table really fast and with minimal prep. Fast food, if you will. Faster than going out for take-out and 32 billionty times more nourishing, not to mention entirely keto. And this Sheet Pan Nutmegger Cheesesteak is simply a riff on one of America’s most favorite fast food sandwiches: The Philly Cheesesteak. So, once again, you really do not have to go without all the things you love just because you care about your health. Woohoo!
If you are not familiar with sheet pan dinners, they are essentially just all the things cooked in the oven on the same pan at the same time. A lot of sheet pan recipes you’ll find on the interwebs, though, call for adding a bunch of things at various different times throughout the cooking process, which in my mind kinda negates the whole point of a sheet pan dinner.
This Sheet Pan Nutmegger Cheesesteak is almost a proper sheet pan dinner: almost everything goes on the pan at the same time, gets shoved in the oven, and 20 minutes later the pan comes out again with everything perfectly cooked. This is a really easy way to make a pan full of delicious dinner, but I confess: you do have to open the oven door 5 minutes before the end for this particular recipe. Because cheese.
When your Sheet Pan Nutmegger Cheesesteak is cooked you could even pile it onto large Fox Hill Bunz – or whatever bread substitute you prefer – and have a fabulous keto Cheesesteak in your mitts! Faster than you could get one from Subway. Plus, you know EXACTLY what is in it. BOOM!

Shaved steak – typically found prepacked in the meat counter or in frozen food – is very, very finely sliced beef. The thickness of the beef is what makes it perfect for a sheet pan dinner because it cooks in the same time as the veggies. The only part that needs less cooking time is the cheese – so once the met and veggies are cooked, the cheeses get added and then the whole sheet pan gets 5 minutes under the broiler to make a delicious mess of meaty cheesy goodness.
I suspect that you keep most of these ingredients on hand in your fridge and pantry so this makes a brilliant last minute “What can I eat?” meal. If this isn’t in your regular rotation it really needs to be!

Top Recipe Tips
- You can also use sliced roast beef. Even though it is thicker, since it is roasted already it should cook in the same time.
- You can use any mixture of cheeses that you prefer to vary the flavor, but for best results make sure you choose ‘melty’ cheeses.
- You can use Braggs Liquid Aminos if you prefer instead of the coconut aminos.
