Cheese Garlic Rolls and Garlic Bread
Cheese Garlic Rolls and Garlic Bread are family favorites. Perfect to serve alongside any Italian meal or with a bowl of your favorite hot soup or stew. Another way we like to eat cheese garlic rolls or garlic bread in particular, is piled high with hot beef. I call it an “open-face, hot beef on garlic bread” sandwich. Garlic bread topped with Hot Beef and Cheese is super. Here is our recipe for Hot Beef Sandwiches.
Inspiration for Garlic Bread
This recipe is super easy and super delicious. The inspiration for this sandwich is from our favorite pizza place called Franks Pizza Palace located in downtown Appleton WI. Not only is Franks well known for their pizza, they’re also known for their hot beef and garlic bread. Franks has been serving delicious pizza and Italian fare at the same location, for over 50 years. Stop in and say “hi” to Jeanie for me.
Open-Faced Hot Beef Sandwich
As I stated above, this recipe is inspired by the hot beef sandwich and garlic bread served at our favorite pizza joint, Franks Pizza Palace. I combined two of our favorites from Franks and turned them into this open-faced hot beef sandwich. Make our recipe for garlic bread (recipe follows) or use your favorite store-bought brand. We like Coles Bake bread according to package directions, under baking the bread by about 8 minutes.
While Bread is Baking
While bread is baking, heat hot beef in saucepan until hot. Remove bread from oven and carefully spoon hot beef on top of garlic bread. Top beef with thin slices of mozzarella or provolone cheese. Loosely wrap hot beef sandwiches in tin foil, bake at 375 degrees until cheese has melted and bread is crisp. Serve with a side of sliced dill pickles, just like they serve their hot beef sandwiches at Frank’s.
Great with any Italian inspired meal.

Garlic Bread is a must have with any Italian inspired meal.
