Hot Roast Beef Party Sandwiches

How many times in the last 10 years have you made the ham and swiss rolls with poppy seads (with the mustard/worscestershire sauce)? My answer is...countless. They are yummy, indeed....but they no longer bring the Oohs and Ahhs that they did, say in 2000, when no one had ever had them or served them. Or knew the recipe by heart.

Every Christmas I make the aforementioned rolls, known in my kitchen as Tara Rolls, because I got the recipe from a friend named Tara, when my family gathers with friends. This year, I decided to change things up a bit, and I also made these....

Hot Roast Beef Party Sandwiches. Here's the recipe. It is deelish! Roast beef + melted Havarti + walnuts + peach preserves = YUMNESS.

I will not judge if you want to change the name of these sandwiches because 1/ the current name is boring and 2/they taste so good they deserve a moniker that is equally appetizing. I may call them Beef Cakes. The preserves and the Havariti gives it a certain sweetness. If you think of something more clever, let me know...

Forgive me for not taking photos of these while preparing and serving to friends. I wasn't in my own kitchen, where taking pictures of myself cooking seems weird enough. I simply wasn't brave enought to dork-out with photo documentation in front of anyone besides Mr. W. I'll be bolder in 2010, but back to the food...

Make these Beef Cakes for a New Year's Eve buffet...or for your New Year's Day Brunch...and by then you'll have mastered (and perhaps renamed?) these bites to serve for the Super Bowl Party!
