Cheddar Dip Sandwich

Ever go out to a restaurant and order a French Dip sandwich and wonder how long it takes to make it? Maybe just me? Well, I am here to share with you a simply scrumptious, ridiculousy easy version of this classic.
I was trolling through my humongous binder of recipe clippings that I want to try and I stumbled upon this one. It sounded so easy and I love ordering it when I go out. I just had to make it.

Cheddar Dip Sandwich
Ingredients-serves 4
1 lb thinly sliced deli roast beef
1 baguette
2 gloves garlic
1/2 stick butter
1 cup cheddar cheese
1 can beef broth

1.Cut butter into chunks and melt in a small pan. When melted throw in the garlic and saute for a few minutes.
2. In a saucepan put the beef broth and roast beef on low and heat until warm.
3. Divide baguette into quarters and slice like a sub roll. Spread garlic mixture on both halves and put 1/4 of the cheddar on the sandwich. Heat under the broiler on low for 5-7 minutes.
4. Take bread out of the oven, divide the beef onto the 4 sandwiches and pour the remaining broth into serving bowls.
5. If you like (and I strongly suggest) either dip or pour some of the broth onto your sandwich as you eat.

These sandwiches were amazing and so simple to make. A very impressive lunch/dinner to serve.

You can add other things to them, but I will probably just stick to these few ingredients making it a no fuss, easy meal. Next time I will probably just microwave the butter and the garlic to make things go more quickly.

To make these A LITTLE better for you, you can always scrape some of the bread out or you can buy a whole wheat baguette.

Hope you enjoy!!  Now I just hope roast beef goes on sale soon at the grocery store :)
