  1. Melt the butter in a skillet over medium heat. Stir in the sliced shallots; cook and stir until very tender and golden-brown, about 10 minutes. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Set aside.
  2. Preheat a panini press according to manufacturer's instructions.
  3. Spread the cut sides of the baguettes with Dijon mustard, then sprinkle evenly with Roquefort cheese. Divide the roast beef among the bottom pieces, then spread the shallots out over the roast beef. Top with the top pieces. Cut each baguette into two or three pieces to fit your panini machine.
  4. Grill the sandwiches on the preheated press until the bread is golden and crisp, and the cheese has melted, about 4 minutes. While the sandwiches are cooking, beat the heavy cream to soft peaks in a metal bowl. Stir in the horseradish, and season with salt and white pepper to taste.
  5. When ready, cut each sandwich in half, and serve with horseradish cream.


  • Tip
  • Aluminum foil helps keep food moist, ensures it cooks evenly, keeps leftovers fresh, and makes clean-up easy.

I used blue cheese (it's what I had on hand) instead of roquefort. if you do the same, do reduce the amount, as it will overpower the mildness of the shallots just a little. I used shallots b...

Pretty good. I liked this concept. My horseradish cream did not come out very strong. Not sure why, I used fresh horseradish root and grated it. The panini did not get as crisp and marked as...

These were yummy. I used feta because I was out of Roquefort. And the horseradish cream was AMAZING.

Hubby and I loved it. I did a few substitutions though, I used sourdough bread instead of baguette, and used Gorgonzola instead of Roquefort because, well, I won't even pretend to know what that...

This is such a simple and delicious dish!! I've made it on several occasions and everyone loves it. I substituted Gorgonzola cheese because I couldn't find Roquefort. The horseradish sauce is a...
