You gotta try this! I threw this together out of things in the fridge and it is just fantastic! (Well, the bread wasn't in the fridge!) Try to use crusty bread, it is really good that way.

This was very good, used leftover roast beef; works well with roast pork too. I used coleslaw salad mix and omitted the lettuce. Buttered the baguette with garlic butter and broiled til golden. Wonderful sandwich. Thanks for sharing.
