Tips & Tricks For The Best Arby’s Beef and Cheddar:

Here are a few great hacks for making the best sandwich:

  • Storing: use foil to wrap the sandwiches and store them in the fridge for up to 2 days. You can reheat them in the oven!
  • Reheating: add a little milk to the cheese sauce and heat in a saucepan over low heat. Stir continuously until warm. Make sure you’re heating nice and slow, or you will end up with oily clumps of cheese!
  • Roast Beef: Ask the butcher for extra-thin slices of roast beef.
  • Buns: If you aren’t a fan of onions, you can use a plain, sesame, poppy seed, or any other bun you prefer.
  • Slap some bacon on your Arby’s sandwich to make their popular Bacon, Beef & Cheddar!
