Thursday Top Ten - Sandwiches!

The lovely Megan, of Fried Okra fame, continues her saga of top ten recipes. Today the focus is on sandwiches. I've got a few favorites to share with you!
I love this recipe - I've posted it before on Slow Cooking Thursday but if you didn't get it then, you'll want to check it out!
French Dip Sandwiches
1 3-lb beef chuck roast
2 cups water
1/2 cup soy sauce
1 tsp rosemary
1 tsp garlic powder
3-4 whole peppercorns
1 tsp dried thyme
1 bay leaf
slices of swiss or colby jack cheese
bakery style hot dog buns
Place roast in slow cooker. Stir together water, soy sauce and seasoning. Pour over roast. Cook on low for 10-12 hours till meat is very tender. Shred meat with 2 forks. Place on hot dog bun with a slice of cheese. Pour broth into individual small cups and serve with sandwich for dipping.
This one has always been a favorite of my kids, especially Andy. It's a quick and easy one.
Open Face Buns
1 pound hamburg, browned and drained
1 can cream of chicken soup
4 teaspoons mustard
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon minced onion
8 ounces shredded cheddar cheese
8 hamburger buns
Mix hamburg with soup, stir in mustard, salt and onion, then stir in cheese. Spread onto bun halves. Place under broiler until cheese is bubbly and lightly browned.
Egg Salad Sandwiches
1/2 pound bacon, cooked and crumbled
12 hard boiled eggs
1/2 cup finely chopped celery
1/4 cup finely chopped onion
1/2 to 1 cup mayonnaise
Mix well and chill before using.
Here's another one I've posted before, but it's a favorite so it's here again!
Sloppy Joe
2 pound hamburger, browned and drained
1/2 cup chopped onion, optional
4 tablespoons corn starch
2 teaspoons salt
4 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons vinegar
1 cup water
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1 cup catsup
2 tablespoons mustard
Put browned hamburg and onions in bowl and microwave on high until hot. Add cornstarch, salt and sugar and stir together. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir together. Microwave on high for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until sauce thickens. This recipe reheats well, so may be refrigerated for later use or just place on low in slow cooker to keep warm.
This recipe takes a little time to cook, but is so easy and the flavor is incredible. I got the recipe from my sister Cheri, and I know we have both passed it on quite a few times. You really have to try it!
Roast Beef Sandwiches
4-6 pound roast
1 pkg dry onion soup
1 family size can cream of mushroom soup
Cut roast into chunks and put into roasting pan or 9X13 pan. Sprinkle dry soup over meat and pour mushroom soup over all. Seal pan with foil. Bake for 3 hours at 350 degrees, stirring every hour. Fork apart and serve on buns.
I have made this to serve a group and it works well to prepare before and keep warm in your slow cooker.
That's all for me, but you can find more great recipes over at Megan's.

Okay, you're gonna laugh...go ahead. On your first recipe, I saw hamburg and thought "hmmmm...I've never cooked hamburg before...wonder exactly what it is?". LOL I actually googled it to see if there was such a thing. LOL I'm guessing you meant hamburger meat. Right? Right? Anyway, I would never have thought to mix that with cream of chicken soup. It sounds interesting.

Funny Kat! Hamburg is a north eastern term ( right Mari?) - which I learned while being a nanny on the east coast!
Blessings to all!

P.S. Mari - you are making me hungry which isn't good to do at midnight!!!! LOL!

We've done the open faced sandwiches but never with the soup. I'm going to have to try that.

Thank you so much for the recipes. I'm always looking for something different to cook. These all look delicious.

Thanks for commenting on my post about the fawn. I am a bit concerned for her future.
