Author Notes: Aside from the alliteration, this is an amazing sandwich. I have a toasty seeded ciabatta roll with a thick slab of rare roast beef and just a little "slap and tickle" with the "fondue" to wake up your tastebuds. You can cut it into fourths for a substantial mini-slider/appetizer.
People love the "fondue" on this so much that I don't add mayo. I do add a fresh tomato when in season, or a campari tomato at other times...
Don't worry about this being a "dangerous" sandwich as our friends in the UK call it...the fondue is thick, not runny and stays on the sandwich, not sliding down the front of your jumper! —lorigoldsby
