I made this many times when my daughter was growing up and now that she (and my sweetheart 4-year-old granddaughter) are back "in the nest" I'll be making it again. Even my "meat and potatoes" hubby likes it!

The original recipe calls for Swiss cheese, but I actually prefer cheddar - I use mild.

If I don't have leftover roast beef, I buy a chunk from the deli.

Low-Carbers: Either make this as listed and just don't take crust with your portion, or make without the crust. Good either way!

P.S. The spicy comes from the pepper jack cheese; add canned chilis if you want.
