Sometimes I mis-calculate.  I’m sure this has never happened to you, but it’s a common occurrence in our house to have the occasional leftover.  Most of the time we eat them as-is.  Yet, I always feel disappointed, as though I’m just having a lesser version of whatever was made the night before.  If you can somehow take those ingredients and re-invent them, they seem to take on their own life, and leave you without the sense of ho-hum longing that leftovers usually leave you with.  So take your leftover roast chicken, and shred it over your next salad, or in our case last night, take your leftover steak, and make an amazing little sandwich.  Here’s what you’ll need:

Leftover Steak
French Crunch Rolls
Your favorite Mustard (right now mine is horseradish mustard)
Your favorite cheese (I had Gorgonzola in the fridge at the time)
Washed Mixed Greens

Now all you have to do is slice the rolls in half, slap some mustard on one or both sides, and place on a cookie sheet.  Place the steak on one side, and the cheese on the other.  Broil until the bread is crispy, the steak warm, and the cheese melted (this took about 3 min for me).  Drizzle with additional mustard if desired, and load up with your mixed greens.  Cut, serve, enjoy.  Mmmmmm…a warm crunchy sandwich that no one will believe you made just because you were trying to clean out your fridge.
