NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 3 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
  • 1 tablespoon horseradish, plus more to taste
  • 8 ounces gruyere cheese, thinly sliced
  • 3/4 pound thinly sliced roast beef
  • 4 hoagie rolls, split
Directions

Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook, stirring, until golden brown, about 10 minutes. Transfer to a bowl; reserve the skillet.

Meanwhile, make the dip: Bring the beef broth and nutmeg to a simmer in a small saucepan; remove from the heat and add the horseradish and 1/2 tablespoon butter. Cover and keep warm.

Layer half of the cheese, then the roast beef, onion and the remaining cheese on the rolls. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in the skillet over medium heat. Add 2 sandwiches and top with a heavy skillet. Cook, pressing down on the top skillet to flatten the sandwiches, until the bread is golden brown and the cheese melts, about 4 minutes per side. Repeat with the remaining 1 tablespoon butter and 2 sandwiches. Serve with the dip.
