Cooper Cheese Roast Beef Sandwich

Slice Slice SLICE 4 4 SERVES: 4

The humble roast beef sandwich has been a staple of delis and picnic lunches since probably the beginning of delis and picnics as we know them. This recipe takes that traditional favorite and gives it a bit of a boost thanks to Cooper’s unique sharp flavor. And you can really shake things up by trying this sandwich with Cooper Black Pepper or adding some Dijon mustard.

INGREDIENTS

4 tablespoons mayonnaise
1 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 clove garlic, minced
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 pound freshly sliced roast beef
1 pound Cooper Sharp White cheese, thinly sliced (about 16 slices)
1 cup sprouts
1 tomato, sliced
4-8 romaine lettuce leaves, washed
8 slices multigrain bread
salt and pepper to taste

DIRECTIONS

In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, horseradish, garlic and lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Assemble your sandwiches:
Spread the mayonnaise mixture onto 2 slices of bread. Layer 1-2 romaine leaves on a slice of bread. Follow with 2 slices of Cooper Sharp cheese. Add 2 tomato slices, then layer 1/4 pound of the roast beef on top. Add 2 more slices of Cooper Sharp cheese. Layer about 1/4 cup sprouts on the cheese, then top with a slice of bread. Repeat to make 4 sandwiches total.
