10 Minute French Dip Sandwich

10 Minute French Dip Dinner


A super simple, easy and great tasting sandwich made it to the table this evening. They were swallowed quickly, but the super secret part is that it took me 10 minutes to put together and I liked it better than any French Dip I have had in restaurants.

I have another secret. The bread is my new favorite and it comes from Walmart. In their bakery, they have the market loaves for $1.00, I get the loaf that is not sliced, it seems to hold their flavor longer. I have tried the garlic and this time I tried the everything topping. For a buck, it is a very good deal.

We had onion rings with these, but baked beans or chips would be good side dishes too.
