Dressed-Up French Dip Sandwiches

French Dip Sandwiches can be an easy dinner or lunch. We decided to change it up a little by adding a couple of spreads and melting some cheese on top of the roast beef.


Here’s the ingredients you will need:

4 deli rolls of your choice

1/2 pound thinly sliced deli roast beef

4 slices of cheese ( your choice, we used Swiss Cheese)

1 packet of Au Jus mix

1/2 cup mayonnaise

3/4 teaspoon creamy horseradish (optional)

1 1/2 teaspoons grain mustard (optional)

First, we are going to make the spreads.  Put 1/4 cup of mayonnaise in a small bowl.

Add the mustard and mix together.

For the horseradish sauce, place the other 1/4 cup of mayonnaise in another small bowl.

Add the 3/4 teaspoon of creamy horseradish and mix together.

To make the Au Jus for dipping the sandwich in, place 3 cups of water in a medium suacepan.  Add the package of au jus mix and  bring it to a boil, while stirring with a wire wisk.  After it boils, turn the heat down to low and simmer until the sandwiches are ready.

Place the sliced deli rolls on a cookie sheet.

Place the cookie sheet under the broiler to toast the rolls.

Leave the oven door open just a little bit.  Keep an eye on them, they will toast quickly.

Remove them from the oven.  Place sliced roast beef on 1/2 of each roll.  Add one slice of cheese on top of the beef.

Place the cookie sheet back under the broiler.  Remove  when the cheese is melted and bubbly.

Serve the sandwiches with the au jus for dipping.  You can add the spreads if you wish.  Megan put the horseradish sauce on hers, I put the mustard on one side of my sandwich and the horseradish sauce on the other.

Easy and delish!!!
