A Big Roast Beef Ciabatta Sandwich

Updated on May 5, 2015

A Simply Delicious Sandwich To Serve Anytime

When I am very hungry, the one thing I want most is a big, delicious sandwich. I want a layered sandwich, one that is full of flavor and includes the freshest ingredients.

A recipe that fits this request is my Big Roast Beef Ciabatta that is filled with all of the makings of an amazing sandwich with fresh veggies and a tasty slice of cheese. My favorite part of this sandwich is the buttery, toasted ciabatta bread that becomes nice and crispy on the outside and moist and chewy inside. When all of these flavors blend, this sandwich becomes a taste sensation.

Serve with a cup of soup or fresh fruit for a truly satisfying meal.


  • 1 loaf ciabatta bread
  • 2 tbls. butter, melted
  • 1 lb. deli roast beef
  • 4 slices cheese, aged cheddar or swiss are good choices
  • 4 tomato slices
  • 8 pickle slices, dill or sweet
  • Country style mustard
  • 2 cups spring mix greens or lettuce of choice
Cast your vote for Roast Beef Ciabatta Sandwich

  4. Top with other half and wrap in foil.

  6. Cut into 4 servings and serve warm.

      Oh yes! This is exactly my kind of sandwich. I wonder how easy it is to make Ciabatta bread - think I'll look into that. Ciabatta means slipper in Italian - I suppose it does look like a flattened old slipper. You have made me feel quite hungry now.

      Looking good. But I think I would go a little light on the lettuce and mustard.
