It’s football time and I’m so excited!
Get ready for some serious good eating. Here’s the first installation.
Spicy, savory, sweet…this sandwich is so good, and easy to make. Fancy up the plain ‘ol roast beef sandwich with some spicy horseradish mayo and caramelized red onions.
Put it all on a buttered pretzel bun and oh…devoured. Pronto.
Hot Roast Beef & Swiss Sandwiches with Horseradish Mayo
- 2/3 to 3/4 pound good quality deli sliced roast beef (I like Boar’s Head brand)
- 4 thick slices Swiss cheese
- 2 1/4-inch slices of red onion, broken into rings
- 1/2 tablespoon butter, plus more for rolls
- 2 pretzel sandwich rolls
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
- freshly ground pepper
In a small bowl, combine mayo, horseradish and a small amount of pepper. Stir and set aside.
In a medium nonstick pan over high heat, melt the butter. Reduce heat to medium-high and add onions, cooking until browned and soft, about 5 minutes. Put onions in a bowl and set aside.
Halve and butter the inside of each slice of pretzel roll. Place butter side down in the pan and let cook until browned, 1-2 minutes. Place buns on a plate.
Turn heat to medium-low. In same pan, add the roast beef slices. Using tongs, toss the slices until evenly browned and warmed through, 2-3 minutes. Form meat into 2 piles in the pan and top each with 2 slices of Swiss cheese. Turn off the heat.
When cheese is beginning to melt, use a spatula to transfer the meat pile to each of the pretzel buns. Top with the cooked onions, and spread the horseradish mayo on the top half of the roll. Open mouth, shove sandwich in, and enjoy!
