As I get more comfortable in the kitchen and try new recipes I am amazed at how easy it can be to make satisfying meals that I never thought were as easy as they are. These Easy French Dip Sandwiches are just the thing for a quick lunch but can also make a satisfying dinner.

With less than 5 ingredients this is quick to make, using your favorite French Onion Soup and deli sliced Roast Beef you will be serving these sandwiches in just minutes.

On a stovetop bring the soup to a boil and add the Roast Beef,while the soup is simmering, split your favorite hoagie style roll and place on a baking sheet. Once meat and soup have simmered for 5 minutes add the meat to the bottom half of roll, top with Provolone cheese and place the top on the sandwich. Pop your sandwiches in a 250 degree oven for 5 minutes to melt the cheese and warm the bun at the same time. Place the remaining soup in a dish for dipping.

Serve with chips, Pasta Salad, fruit or even Macaroni and Cheese to a super quick dinner in under 15 minutes!

These Easy French Dip Sandwiches are also great to pack in a picnic or take with you on a road trip. Just wrap in foil to keep warm and you have a great on-the-go sandwich!

  1. Hi! I found your recipe from a link at I’m an Organizing Junkie. These look so delicious and easy, that I am making them tonight! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

        • Awesome! So glad to hear most of you liked them. Kids can be picky, can’t they?

  2. I too just found this recipe via Organizing Junkie and just pinned it on my frugal mama recipe board.
    Totally going to try making these asap.

    We made these today. Boy oh boy were they ever so yummy. Thanks for sharing.

    • Hi Savannah, it totally depends on what kind of bun you use and how much of the roast beef you put on it. We typically get about 5 sandwiches.

  5. Making this tonight! But could I make this without serving the soup on the side? Would there be enough or would I need to add more meat to make it more filling?

    • Charissa, The crock in the photos is the dipping sauce. So you definitely want to serve that. AS far as if there will be enough, that depends on how many you plan on serving. This recipe makes enough for 4-6 sandwiches depending on how much meat you put on each. You can definitely add more meat if needed.


  6. As an unexperienced cook, I have to ask,
    What size can of french onion soup should I use?

    • Hi Ashley, the french onion soup can is 10.5 oz.
      Happy Cooking!

  7. Hi,
