I don’t eat a lot of sandwiches. I see them on other blogs all the time, and they really look good, but somehow, I just never think about them. And, then there is the fact that most sandwiches are cold, and unless it is a salad or ice cream, I’m not a big cold food eater. But, this Warm Chipotle Raspberry Smoked Cheddar Roast Beef Sandwich is anything but cold. It is all warm and cheesy with a warm-with-pepper chipotle raspberry mayonnaise. And, it was delicious.
If are you really on your toes, you might realize that some of these pictures were taken on one day of one sandwich and some on another day of a different sandwich. You see, the only thing I was making new in this sandwich was the raspberry chipotle mayonnaise, so I mistakenly thought that if I new I had it correct that toasting a sandwich was not a big deal. The only thing was that I really wanted smoked cheese on it, and I chose smoked Gouda. Now, I know that the smoked Gouda I used in my sweet potato totchos melted, but this didn’t. I mean, it just blistered like plastic. So, I looked it up, and apparently this is not uncommon. Some of it melts and some of it doesn’t. So, I switched to smoked cheddar, which I ended up liking better anyway, but I kept the photos that were before the cheese was added – like the one above where I am brushing the bread with butter.
Then toast it until it gets all melty, spread with raspberry chipotle mayonnaise, sprinkle with green onions, and enjoy! This recipe is for two sandwiches, though you will likely have extra chipotle raspberry mayonnaise if you want to make more.
