Main Dish

French Dips


Any time I have left overs after making a big meal like roast beef, its nice to have an easy recipe for the following night to use up these left overs. And this French Dip is the perfect recipe to use up any left over roast beef. My family loves this recipe so much that sometimes I have to make a whole roast beef just for these French Dips. If you try this, I would love to hear your thoughts on it 🙂


**Ingredient amounts vary depending on the amount of roast beef you have left over, the size of the rolls, and the amount of sandwiches you plan to make. Please feel free to leave a comment if you have any questions.**





left over Roast Beef sliced thinly or shredded


Swiss Cheese

Onion sliced ( I like mine sliced thin, however, my husband likes his sliced thick.)

Ciabatta Rolls ( Normally I use a full size roll, but when I made them this time the store only had the mini rolls… sliders)



1 can beef broth

a few slices of onion (about 3)

1-2 cloves of garlic



preheat oven to 350 degrees

Split all the rolls and lay on a cookie sheet with the inside of the roll facing up. Spread mayo on one side of both halves of the rolls (the side that’s facing up). On the bottom half of the rolls lay a few slices of roast beef. And on the top halves of the rolls place one slice of Swiss cheese ( I only used half a slice on the slider rolls). Next lay a slice of onion on top the cheese ( I also used only half a slice of union due to the mini slider rolls). Place in oven for about 10 minutes or until roast beef is warm and cheese is melted. While these are cooking put beef  broth, few slices of onion, and garlic cloves in a sauce pan on high heat. Bring to a boil, then turn heat down to low. Make sure dip is cool enough before dipping sandwiches in! You could always make the dip first and just put it on low heat while you make your sandwiches. Enjoy 🙂
