Roast Beef & Swiss Melts

I made my children a promise that I would have a good snack ready for them each day after school.  I try to make something that’s almost a second lunch, substantial enough to keep them going until dinner.  I’ve found it’s less expensive for me to make another meal than it is to watch them devour countless “snacks.”

I threw this open faced sandwich together last week and it was a hit, even with my husband.  I personally don’t care much for Swiss cheese, but I also liked them.  With only 4 ingredients, about 4 minutes to assemble, and less than 4 minutes to cook, I thought I’d share it with you in case you’re interested.

On each half of a bagel, spread  1/2 teaspoon of mustard.  Place two slices of roast beef on each half, and one slice of Swiss cheese on top.  Place on a cookie sheet and broil for a couple of minutes or until the cheese is melted.  Remove and serve warm, as open faced sandwiches.

Hope you like them!  (We did.)
