French dips were one of my favorite sandwiches as a kid. I haven’t had one in at least ten years. I wonder why that is. It could be that I’m not a huge sandwich eater anymore. If I’m eating out, I’m usually getting something far more decadent, or I’m eating at a Thai or Japanese restaurant. We eat a lot of Thai and sushi. I think I need to get back into things like patty melts and French dips. They’re so good. They’re comforting too especially when there’s a big ol’ pile of fries next to it.
This recipe claims to be the best ever recipe for a French dip. You know what I need you all to do. Try it! Let us know! Is it the best you’ve ever had? If so, why? If not, why not? Let us know. We love hearing about cooking successes and… less successful cooking ventures. This recipe does look spot on. Give it a shot. I think you’ll love it!

- 1 bakery fresh baguette

- 1-2 tbsp horseradish

- Cook the bread open faced in the oven for 5 minutes. This will lightly brown the bread and give that great crunch.
- Combine mayo and horseradish and spread over bread on both sides.
- Layer lots of roast beef on the bottom piece of bread. Thick bread needs a thick layer of meat!
