These simple hot deli sandwiches are a family favorite.  It makes for a quick dinner, an appetizer, or you can even make extra and freeze these for fast lunches. We love these for family get-togethers this time of year and they pair wonderfully with a warm bowl of soup.

Every time I’m meal planning Brad suggests these and I always forget just how simple they really are!  There are several variations to this recipe, but this one is easy to remember and beats a plain ole deli sandwich any day!

    Thanks for this recipe! I have had something like this before and was wondering the other day what they were called. I knew it had poppyseed/mustard but that was about it… I think I’ll add these to my Christmas Day Brunch.
