Chef’s Words:

We have the complete recipe for roast beef with a cheese sandwich. I have used Parmesan cheese here. But you can use others as well. I had plain white bread so I made sandwiches with them but you can use Ciabatta, French Bread, Sourdough, Kaisar, Boule Bread, Focaccia, Croissant, Rustic Artisan, etc. as well. Just slice them into halves. 

When I prepare hot roast beef sub, I use French bread and Kaisar for a great looking. In a sandwich, the more you add ingredients, the more they will taste good.
