Topped with Oregon blackberry jam and a steak right down through the middle.
“It came together because of Chip being gone, thank goodness, but sort of to promote ‘Go Eagles’ at the same,” Shilling told CBSPhilly.com on Tuesday.
Shilling, who has been living in the Philadelphia area for 25-years, is an avid Eagles fan, often seen catering tailgates outside Lincoln Financial Field during home games.
“Eagles, Eagles, and more Eagles,” the former Ritz-Carlton Chef said, when asked if he was a Philly sports fan.
