Hot Roast Beef Party Sandwiches

This is an updated version of a recipe that used ham, cheese, and mustard. Eyes lit up at our tasting table when these roast beef sandwiches came out of the oven.

Southern Living OCTOBER 2007

  • Yield: Makes 12 to 16 servings
  • Cook time:6 Minutes
  • Prep time:20 Minutes
  • Bake:25 Minutes


  • 1/2 cup finely chopped walnuts
  • 2 (9.25-oz.) packages dinner rolls
  • 2/3 cup peach preserves
  • 1/2 cup mustard-mayonnaise blend
  • 3/4 pound thinly sliced deli roast beef, chopped
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced Havarti cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste (optional)


1. Heat walnuts in a small nonstick skillet over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally, 5 to 6 minutes or until lightly toasted.

2. Remove rolls from packages. (Do not separate rolls.) Cut rolls in half horizontally, creating 1 top and 1 bottom per package. Spread preserves on cut sides of top of rolls; sprinkle with walnuts. Spread mustard-mayonnaise blend on cut sides of bottom of rolls; top with beef and cheese. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste, if desired. Cover with top halves of rolls, preserves sides down, and wrap in aluminum foil.

3. Bake at 325° for 20 to 25 minutes or until cheese is melted. Slice into individual sandwiches.

Note: To make ahead, prepare recipe as directed through Step 2, and freeze up to 1 month. Thaw overnight in refrigerator, and bake as directed in Step 3. For testing purposes only, we used Rainbo Dinner Time Rolls, Hellmann’s Dijonnaise Mustard, and Boar’s Head Londonport Top Round Seasoned Roast Beef.

Chicken Corn Casserole

Filed under: Recipes,Uncategorized — Elizabeth @ 4:28 pm

Saute together in large pot:

2 T Chopped Onion

1 T chopped green pepper

1 TBSP butter

Stir In:

1 can cream of chicken soup

1 cup milk

½ cup chicken broth

2 C cooked chicken – I use a Rotisserie Chicken

8-oz bag of frozen corn

2 tsp of Tony Chachere’s Creole Seasoning – I use more but I like it a little spicy

Cook until heated thoroughly –doesn’t take long at all.

Don’t put the cooked chicken in too early or it can get stringy – at least that’s what the recipe says but I haven’t had that happen.  The Chachere’s creole seasoning is a must for this recipe!  It is yummy the next day too!
