  • Method: Stovetop
  • Cuisine: American


  • 2 soft rolls
  • 1 package Boursin cheese (either the herb and garlic or pepper variety)
  • 1/4 pound rare roast beef from the deli counter (or more if you like lots of meat on your sandwich!)
  • 1 leek
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil


  1. Slice the rolls in half, and spread the bottom half generously with cheese.
  2. Layer the roast beef on top of the cheese.
  3. Trim the root end and the dark green tops off the leek, and cut the remaining section in half length-wise. Rinse it under running water to make sure it is clean.
  4. Slice the leek into thin slices. Heat the oil in a medium frying pan over medium high heat and saute the leek slices until they are tender and the edges are starting to crisp, about 5-7 minutes.
  5. Spoon the leeks on top of the roast beef, top with the other half of the roll and serve at once.
