Another leftover roast beef sandwich is Hot Roast Beef Sandwich with Melted Cheese and Caramelized Onions.

When I make a sandwich, I like using good crusty bread like a baguette or French bread, which is a perfect fat free bread option. A trick I like to do when I make a sandwich is to scoop out some of the inside of the bread, which allows me to make a larger sandwich, and it leaves room for the meat and lettuce. I personally enjoyed most  of my sandwiches dry but if you prefer adding mayo or dressing, you’ll have to adjust the points. I bet horseradish mayo would be lovely on this!

I’ve been getting lots of emails from working folks who need help preparing quick and easy lunches on the go that don’t require heating up the kitchen. I am dedicating the rest of the week to healthy sandwiches. If you have a sandwich you would like to share with everyone feel free to comment and maybe I’ll post your recipe!

  1. Made for my sister and me, no changes in the recipe, no Mayo, just dry, and we both LOVED it!!!  Flavor combinations excellent, and we were surprised that a dry sandwich could  be so tasty and satisfying!  Going to make it again for lunch today. 

  2. I ended up making this for dinner and it was easy, filling and fast. I served it with roasted veggies and a Thai Iced Tea (homemade).

  3. I make a similar sandwich on home made onion bread – add tomato slices and this dressing: equal parts Dijon & Hellmanns mayo, then add horseradish to taste. I just found your site and I love it!

  4. I added up the macros for all of these ingredients and a couple of things struck me:
    My count for sodium is 403 mg, not 148.
    My count for protein is 9 g, not 22.
    It was also fewer calories that what's listed here, but you won't hear me complaining about that.

    I made this for lunch today. I just added a teaspoon of white balsamic vinegar to it (didn't add any points but gave it that awesome balsamic kick I love oh so much)! It was delicious and so satisfying. I actually toasted my baguette in the oven for three min, and it added a great crunch for more textures. Awesome recipe! Thanks again. 🙂
    Just another keeper to add to my list of WW friendly recipes!

    Just made this for lunch for the hubby and me. Well almost just like this, I didn't have roast beef so I traded it for turkey! But it was extremely delicious

  7. I just made this for lunch today!! Wow–it was amazing. I added a little dijon! I will definitely be making this every week!

  8. I love this sandwich!! I add a little greek yogurt (0% fat plain)for a little moisture and tang (not a fan of Mayo, and love the perks of greek yogurt).

  9. My husband and I just made this for dinner and it was awesome!! I did use a little of the Kraft Horseradish/Dijon Mayo and I loved that little bit of spiciness it added to it.

  10. Made this tonight… it was AWESOME! Very quick and easy, but still yummy and filling. I added some light mayo mixed with chopped basil. We'll be making this one again and again!

  11. I made this last night for when I went to work today. I couldn't wait to get to work just so I could go on break and eat this scrumptious look sandwich. All of my co-workers kept asking me what was on and said "I want one!" It was soooo good and hit the spot. Definitely filled me up and can't wait to eat the other half tomorrow! This is definitely one of the best sandwiches ever!

    This looks so tasty! A fave of mine is chicken salad made with mango salsa, low-fat mayo (could also use yogurt), chicken breast and green onions.

    jenn- steak sandwiches are my weakness!!

    deborah, yum!!!!

    mary – I have a few lightened up chicken salad recipes. Light mayo and some fat free yogurt would work perfectly!
