Beef And Cheddar Sandwich Recipe

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. Now this may not be a perfect clone of their sandwich but it's pretty darn close.

I, like a hundred million people out there, love fast food but I find it never tastes the same when I try it at home. I love cooking and I think I’m a decent cook but I try to keep my food homey and my fast food… well, not homey. You know what I mean. =)

Good luck from Diary of a Writer in Progress.
