Before preparing this classic snack, I want to let you know some essential tips and tricks when assembling a sandwich. You are already used to my way of doing things – research before everything! I should make a life motto out of this! I am aware that sometimes you might find this section boring and even skip it, but, please keep in mind that tips are often game-changers when cooking at home!

  • Even though I use cream cheese for this recipe, there are a lot of other cheese options you can go for. Blue cheese, cheddar, asiago, gouda, fontina, or Swiss are different kinds of cheese that go great with roast beef. However, you don’t even need to use cheese for this sandwich, if you aren’t a big fan of this combo.
  • Use your leftover beef. One of my personal favorite ways to use leftover roast beef is to make a hot roast beef sandwich in only a few minutes. There is nothing like a super flavorful sandwich with roast beef leftovers!
  • Finally, keep in mind that assembling a sandwich I all about the cook’s preferences and taste, You can add almost anything and it will still be delicious for the one who serves it. However, keep in mind that the ingredients you pair should go well with one another. Even though I like as much ice cream as the next girl, I won’t add it to my roast beef sandwich.
