Quizno’s used to sell a very tasty French dip and Scott has been missing them. I scoured the Internet for a copycat version of the sandwich and came close, but no cigar. While it’s not the same, it tastes great! I found this recipe over at food.com
Toasted Steakhouse Sandwich
- 1 tbsp butter
- 1 tbsp finely chopped yellow onion
- 1 tbsp flour
- 1 packet au jus mix
- 1 2/3 cup water
- 1/2 cup prepared alfredo sauce
- 1/4 cup mayonnaise
- 1 dash onion salt or garlic salt
- French bread roll
- 3/4 lb thin-sliced deli roast beef
- 1/2 cup shredded Italian cheese blend
- 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese
- For the au jus sauce, melt butter in saucepan and saute onions until tender. Add flour and stir. Add contents of au jus mix packet and gradually whisk in water. Simmer the sauce while making the sandwich.
- For the “secret” sauce, stir together the alfredo sauce, mayonnaise, and onion salt or garlic salt. Spread sauce evenly over both pieces of sliced bread.
- Heat the oven to 350 F. Place the French bread rolls on baking sheet and place in the oven for about 1 minute, or until the sauce bubbles a little; remove from oven.
- Add the roast beef to the French bread rolls and then the cheese on top. Place back in the oven for 2-3 minutes, until the cheese has melted. Serve with au jus sauce.
