yummy! It's been years since I've had one of these sandwiches. I used some leftover beef roast and totally enjoyed eating this wonderful comfort food on a cool fall evening. Thanks for sharing this great keeper. Made for Cookbook Tag.

Memories of childhood come to mind every time I have this! This just kicks it up a level with the added herbs and onions. My BF and I love them, and have them whenever we have roast beef leftovers. We will have again and again, because it's the best way for us to use up our leftovers, and the sandwiches are great!
