Ms. Cheezious on Live With Kelly and Michael: Watch and Vote Now (Video)

If you stop by Ms. Cheezious for lunch at Coconut Grove Bank today from 11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m., be prepared to offer some congratulations any maybe see some campaign buttons.

No, Ms. Cheezious is not running for Congress (though she's not any cheesier than anyone else in Washington D.C.). Ms. Cheezious's Brian Mullins is in New York cooking for Erin Andrews and Michael Strahan as part of Live's Truckin' Amazing Cook-Off on the Live with Kelly and Michael show.

Ms. Cheezious is one of 10 trucks from around the United States chosen from dozens for the finals. Each Friday, a different truck's chef is flown to New York City to prepare their truck's specialty live on set.

Chef/owner Mullins prepares the "South in Your Mouth," a combination of barbecued pulled pork, cheddar cheese, and pickles on Texas toast. The sandwich was good enough to earn Mullins a spot in the top 10!

Starting now, food truck fans will be able to vote for Ms. Cheezious, with voting closing on Sunday, June 30 at 10 a.m. That means that Ms. Cheezious has only 48 hours to get as many votes as possible -- and bring home top honors to Miami!

By voting, you have the opportunity to win $500 worth of Omaha steaks which will come in handy when you fire up the grill. And if they win, Ms. Cheezious rolls away with $20,000.

Here's Ms. Cheezious making the best sammy in the world:

Here's Michael and Erin swooning over the sandwich:

Vote now! And make the sandwich with this recipe.
