I tweaked this recipe so that it was served hot and wow! Absolutely amazing! I buttered hoagie rolls and toasted them in the oven at 350 degrees. I used deli roast beef and pan seared it for a few seconds on each side to get it hot then spread miracle whip and horseradish on the hoagies added the roast beef then the blue cheese. My husband thought they were incredible and we will definitely serve it again! Read More

The sandwich was good but it was a bit dry. It could have used some sort of sauce. Read More

Wow. This knocked my socks off with the very first bite! Indescribeably delicious... so good I can't even spell it. I improvised and used what I had on hand sandwich bread toasted chunky blue cheese dressing and dried basil. I even forgot to toast the walnuts. Imagine this toasted... Mmmmmm. Even with the stuff I used it was 5 star I can't wait to try it with the real bread and cheese (and remember to toast the walnuts next time). You've got to try this it is soooo good! Read More

Delicious! The only changes I had to make was to use regular sandwich bread because I didn't have any sub rolls on hand and I had to use dried basil because I didn't have any fresh on hand. I'm eager to try this sandwich with the fresh basil as I know it will give such a wonderful fresh burst of flavor. I used regular mayo instead of light which was what I had on hand. The first time I made it I used blue cheese crumbles AND blue cheese dressing... but that makes for very pungent blue cheese flavor so I wouldn't recommend that. Use blue cheese dressing only if you don't have the blue cheese crumbles. Otherwise use blue cheese crumbles and mayo. Delicious wonderful combination of flavors. I also pan seared my roast beef (don't really care for it cold out of the fridge). You won't be disappointed with this one! Thanks for sharing! Read More

Wow the flavors in this sandwich worked so well together. I used sandwich buns rather than sub buns and toasted them for a minute. Then I spread them with a horseradish mayo that I had. I heated the beef very quickly in a hot skillet and that helped the blue cheese get soft and melty. Yummmm. Great sandwich and easy to put together quickly. Read More

This is a really good easy recipe!! I followed the recipe exactly and I wouldn't change a thing. My husband and I both loved it and whenever he sees blue cheese in our fridge he's hoping it's for this recipe. Read More

I sauteed the roast beef in a little au jus powder and toasted a crusty bagette in the oven. The rest of the recipe I followed. The flavors of the blue cheese nuts beef and basil go very nicely together. My man hates walnuts and still loved this so don't shy away from the nuts. Read More

This is a wonderful blend of flavors. Everyone in my family enjoyed this. However I agree with other users that the roast beef should be warmed before assembling the sandwich. Otherwise I feel that the blue cheese flavor is too pungent. Will definitely make this again. Read More

This was great! I did change it a little. I heated up the roast beef and then I put the cheese on wrapped it in foil and put it under the broiler. My boyfriend doesn't like blue cheese so for his I used cheddar and it was really good. I really like the mayo basil combo!!! Read More

I needed something special and quick for a transportable lunch at work....this recipe was awesome. Although I'm sure that it would be even better warm and toasted I made it to the letter and it was delicious and different. Lots of compliments! The basil/blue cheese combination is amazing. Read More
