Ingredients

How to make it

  • To assemble the sandwich, place a piece of white bread on a large plate (my husband insists on good old Wonder or Tastey Bread for this sandwich - the softer the bread the better, according to our tradition!).
  • Layer the bread with some meat.
  • Place another slice of bread on top of the meat.
  • Slice the sandwich in 1/2 and seperate the 2 halves to make room for the potatoes.
  • Place a big scoop of hot mashed potatoes between the sandwich halves
  • Smother bread and potatotes completely in gravy.
  • Serve immediately. Prepare to nap afterwards..........

    Can't wait to try this. As a kid I ate this often. At the Mom & Pop restaurants, it only costs 85 cents or 45 cents if you just got the potatoes and the gravy. 45 cents is what a meal ticket cost at school so my buddies and I would go to Osterbergs quite often for the commercial.

    Coma by beef! I can't believe that I haven't seen this recipe yet. My family loves hot roast beef sandwiches and they are going to love your recipe. I'm happy to see that you used sour cream in the potatoes as that's what I do. Good stuff, Krum! Thanks so much for this recipe. I'm sure that I'll be making it here often now that I found it! Here's hoping that all is well with you! Annie

    This looks delish. The funny thing is my Mother-in-law makes Turkey Commercials with leftovers and I told my husband there was no such thing as commercials that they were just whatever. Apparently, I'm wrong. Teehhe. But he doesn't know that eh?

    I've got this in the oven right now. It's been cooking for a couple of hours now and it smells great. I have made this once before and it's incredible. I added chopped onion and sliced mushrooms this time. I can't wait to eat it!

    I grew up on mashed potatoes and gravy, so this is a top shelf dinner in my book! There's something magical in the bread. When a roast beef dinner is changed into hot beef sandwiches it somehow becomes so much better. Thanks.
    And remember always make a lot of gravy because some stays in the pump and the hose. ;^)

    we always called these hot beef sandwiches and served them with the potatoes on top and gravy over all. Fresh Tomato slices on the side. but yours is much more elegant. A definite keeper. Thank you.
