Contest-Winning Grilled Roast Beef Sandwiches

This fast favorite hits the spot when we're short on time. Roast beef, cheese, and sauteed onion, green pepper and mushrooms are sandwiched between slices of sourdough bread, then toasted on a griddle to buttery perfection. &Mdash; Jolie Goddard, Elko, Nevada

    Not bad, but for some reason some of these flavors didn't appeal to me. It was either the roast beef or the Swiss. Just personal preference. I don't think I'll want to eat it again.

    Works great in a pinnini maker. A real husband pleaser.
