Beef and Cheese Melts
Servings: 4 Prep 10 mins Cook 3 mins Broil 1 min


  • 9 ounces sliced pot roast (about 8 1/4-inch-thick slices)
  • 1 cup gravy
  • 4 slices hearty white bread, lightly toasted
  • 4 1 ounce slices deli cheddar cheese
  • 12 pickled jalapeno pepper slices
  • Shoestring fries and cole slaw (optional)

Make It

1. Heat broiler.

2. In a large skillet, heat pot roast and gravy over medium heat until heated through, about 3 minutes; thin gravy with a few tablespoons of water, if necessary.

3. Spread toast out on a broiler pan. Divide pot roast slices evenly among toast. Spoon most of the gravy over the meat, and top each sandwich with a slice of cheddar cheese. Spoon any remaining gravy over cheese, then top with a few jalapeno slices.

4. Broil 1 minute, until cheese is melted. Serve with fries and cole slaw, if desired.
