Dietitian Tip

Cheddar is high in fat and calories, so limit to 2 tablespoons for each sandwich. For variety, use roast beef that has been rubbed with Italian seasonings.


  • 1/2 green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 small onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces lean roast beef, shaved
  • 2 whole-wheat buns
  • 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, shredded


Heat the oven to 350 F. Lightly coat a baking pan with cooking spray. Spray a frying pan with cooking spray.

Over medium heat, saute the peppers and onions until they soften, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the roast beef and saute for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.

Place 1/2 of the roast beef mixture on the bottom half of each bun. Place in the prepared baking dish. Top each bun with 2 tablespoons of the cheese. Bake until the cheese has melted, 2 to 4 minutes. Remove and add the top of bun and serve.
