French Dip Sandwiches

Perfect for a casual party or to feed a group of teenagers.


French Dip Sandwiches

  • 2 pounds deli roast beef, thinly sliced or shaved ( or turkey)
  • 8 French dip or sourdough style sandwich rolls
  • 8 ounces shredded part skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 package Au jus gravy mix (you might need two packages if you like a lot of Au Jus)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Tear off  8 sheets of aluminum foil large enough to wrap each sandwich in. Cut sandwich rolls in half length wise. Place 4 ounces of roast beef (or turkey) on each roll, top with 1 ounce of cheese. Roll up tightly in foil. At this point you can refrigerate the sandwiches and bake later or proceed. I place the wrapped sandwiches on a cookie sheet. Bake for 15 minutes.

While sandwiches are baking, mix up the Au jus gravy according to package directions. Remove sandwiches from oven and unwrap the foil. Slice each sandwich in half diagonally and serve with a dish of Au jus.

Calorie counts and WWP’s are going to depend on the what brand of products you use. Katy and I like less meat on our sandwiches, I usually skip the cheese and Katy adds more cheese to hers!
