Roast Beef Herbed Cheese Sandwich

Roast Beef Herbed Cheese Sandwich. This is a favorite sandwich based on one that is sold at the Vie de France bakeries. When my husband and I were dating, the Vie de France restaurant in the Fair Oaks Mall was a favorite casual lunch spot. This sandwich was our favorite item to order at Vie de France other than the chocolate croissants. That restaurant location has since closed so I have recreated my version of the Roast Beef Herbed Cheese Sandwich at home.

At Vie de France, we would always order our roast beef and herbed cheese sandwich on a croissant. After all, it’s a French bakery with very tasty croissants. For this recipe and photos, I used an onion sandwich roll called an Onion Bulkie. You can use your favorite sandwich roll, baguette, or even sliced bread.

For my copycat recipe, soft herbed cheese called Boursin is spread on halved sandwich rolls.

Then, thinly sliced roast beef is piled high and topped with ripe tomato slices.

The sandwiches are cut in half and served with potato chips or carrot sticks.

Serve with potato chips, carrot sticks, or a side salad.
