HOT ROAST BEEF SANDWICHES
How many times have you walked in the house at the end of a work day and you have no clue what dinner is going to look like and all you really want to do is sit down for a few minutes and unwind? Here is an easy solution to that dilemma. Take just a little time one day to put together make ahead sandwiches that you can wrap in foil, put in the freezer, and pull out any time to warm in the oven and have a satisfying meal with perhaps a bowl of soup or a salad.
The Pioneer Woman recently did this very thing on her weekly Food Network show. Her recipe for a sandwich sauce is listed below, but Olivia (who does not have a fondness for mayonnaise) came up with her own great alternative sauce as well. Be creative in your use of ham, roast beef, turkey, etc. You can also use artisan buns, regular hamburger buns, Hawaiian sweet bread rolls, etc. These little homemade sandwiches would also be a great snack for the kids. Test your oven to see how long it takes to warm yours up. I would start with a 350 degree oven at 15-20 minutes like it says below. This will be a great go to meal when you have somewhere else to go in the evening, or the urge to cook just isn't there. Be sure to use a marker to identify your foil wrapped sandwiches in the freezer, unless you like surprises!
