Beef-and-Arugula Ciabatta Sandwiches are a welcomed addition to any lunch menu. These sandwiches get their zing from the red pepper jelly that's stirred into mayonnaise.


  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 3 tablespoons red pepper jelly
  • 1 (12-oz.) package frozen individual ciabatta rolls
  • 8 rare deli roast beef slices (about 1/2 lb.)
  • 8 Havarti cheese slices (about 1/2 lb.)
  • 2 cups loosely packed arugula

How to Make It

  1. Preheat oven to 400°. Whisk together first 2 ingredients.

  2. Place rolls on a baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 5 minutes or until lightly toasted but still soft. Let cool 10 minutes; split rolls.

  3. Spread cut sides of rolls with mayonnaise mixture. Layer bottom roll halves with beef, folding slices as needed to fit rolls. Top each with cheese, arugula, and remaining roll halves, mayonnaise mixture sides down.
