    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!

    Thanks so much, without this I never would have known how to lay some left over beef and gravy on a slice of white bread. GENIUS!

    I was looking for a recipe to cook roast beef and make gravy. Instead, I stumbled onto a "recipe" of how to assemble a sandwich. Why would anyone need this??


There I am sitting in front of the computer, one of my favorite spots in the house. When I'm not at the computer, I enjoy cooking and entertaining. See my icon? It is an old Royal typewriter. My father had one just like it that he gave me when I was in college. It had one key that stuck, but I typed all my term papers on that old thing. Whenever I see that icon I remember those happy days.
