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.


bagels mustard roast beef slices sliced Swiss cheese 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.)

    I like your idea! My kids want to eat me out of house and home when they get home from school! My teenage son is the worst–and I’m usually finishing up dinner when he gets home from school!
