When I was a teenager, a friend of mine introduced me to Arby's. She loved the beef and cheddar sandwich and since I wasn't even mildly adventurous back then, I decided to order exactly what she did. I immediately grew to love the beef and cheddar sandwich until a few years ago after eating at a new Arby's location and then feeling sick for the next 24 hours.
I just can't bring myself to eat there again. I'm not sure if this will be a lifetime ban or not. But that hasn't stopped me from wanting a beef and cheddar sandwich again. So I set out to re-create one on my own. I figured I could easily make them like the ham and cheese sliders, just in full-sized form.
Cheesy Beef Sandwich
Source: A Cookaholic Wife Creation
- ¼ cup mayonnaise
- 1 tbsp. Dijon mustard
- 1 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp. poppy seeds
- 8 onion burger buns
- 2 lbs. deli london broil or roast beef
- 8 tbsp. Cheese Whiz or jarred cheese sauce, divided
1. Preheat the oven to 325. Line a baking sheet with foil.
2. In a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, mustard, Worcestershire sauce and poppy seeds.
3. Spread the mayo mixture on both sides of each burger bun.
4. Assemble each sandwich with a layer of london broil, a tablespoon of Cheese Whiz and another layer of london broil.
5. Place the sandwiches on the prepared baking sheet and tent with another piece of foil. Bake for 5-10 minutes or until just heated through.
The burger buns weren't onion-y enough to really re-create the same flavor as the beef and cheddar sandwich from Arby's, but these were still absolutely delicious. Tom asked me if next time I could just heat the london broil because the bottoms of the buns got slightly toasted which didn't allow for the cheese to melt in.
I had a leftover one microwaved the next day and it was equally as delicious.
