*Copy-Cat* Arby’s Beef N’ Cheddar

One of my favorite fast food sandwiches is the Arby’s Beef ‘N Cheddar with it’s roast beef smothered in cheese sauce topped with tangy Arby’s sauce. The problem is that is physically pains me to pay for fast food when I can make something of equal or greater quality and taste at home. My husband, a die-hard Arby’s flavor fanatic, agreed this sandwich is an Arby’s clone.

I have a confession to make…I haven’t been completely honest with you. These don’t taste  like the Arby’s beef & cheddar sandwiches we all know and love. These taste better!! It’s the same great flavor you love, but without any of the old greasy taste. Also, if you don’t feel like mixing up your own Arby’s sauce, you can sub Catalina dressing. I have it on good authority that that’s actually the secret, much coveted loved, Arby’s sauce.

Have you tried making your own fast food favorites at home?
