Hi again Nap Time readers! Jen here from Yummy Healthy Easy back with another fabulously easy recipe! Have you ever had a French Dip sandwich? You know, those sandwiches filled with tons of flavorful roast beef slices and a yummy little bowl of broth on the side to dip it in?? Yum.

One of my favorite local diners has these amazing French Dip Sandwiches and I die every time I eat one. There’s something so comforting about a roast beef sandwich on crusty bread that you dip in warm au jus.

I started craving them big time when I was pregnant with my third son and found the best and easiest recipe EVER. Only a handful of ingredients and it takes about 10 minutes from start to finish!

I’ve used all sorts of rolls and bread and found that I love a good baguette warmed and cut into fourths. Using pre-packaged roast beef lunch meat (or cut from your local deli) makes this recipe super easy. The au jus is so flavorful and is the best part of the meal!
