This Arby’s Ham and Cheddar Melt with Arby’s Sauce copycat recipe is one you are going to love! A quick and easy dinner recipe for the whole family.
These Arby’s Ham and Cheddar Melts are one of my kids favorite lunches. They prefer them over any fast-food burger, chicken nuggets, or anything else. The bad news for my kids is that we really don’t eat out that often… the good news for them is that we make this super easy sandwich recipe at home. They love the melts just as much as when we go to Arby’s. Now everyone is happy, and I know exactly what to make for lunch!
Arby’s Sandwich Sauce
A sandwich recipe for an Arby’s melt wouldn’t be complete without the Arby’s sauce (which is one thing that I personally love). On the rare occasions we do go to Arby’s I always ask for an extra few packets, and whatever we don’t use that day, we just keep in our fridge for when we make these at home. HOWEVER, a couple weeks ago I was browsing through my good friend, Carrian’s, blog (Oh Sweet Basil — if you haven’t checked out her site, you must! All of her recipes are mouth-watering)… anyway, I came across one of her copycat recipes that included a recipe for Arby’s Sauce! I was so excited when Carrian said I could share it with all of you! No more storing away little packets of Arby’s Sauce. Now I can make it at home, and so can you!
A Flexible Sandwich Recipe
If you want to make an Arby’s Beef and Cheddar melt simply switch out the ham for some thinly sliced roast beef. Super easy sandwich recipe substitution. You can go as fancy or as cheap as you want on these– it all depends on the quality of deli-meat that you buy. Obviously the more you are willing to spend on quality deli meat, the better the sandwich will be. Now, go get yourself some curly-fries and enjoy your Arby’s copycat sandwiches and Arby’s sauce!
- In a medium-sized skillet over medium heat, cook deli ham until heated through (spray the pan with cooking spray to reduce sticking).
- Spread Arby's sauce on one side of each bun and place ham on the bun.
- Spoon on cheddar cheese sauce (see below) and serve.
For the cheese sauce:
- Melt butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour (whisking constantly) and cook for about 1 minute forming a roux.
- SLOWLY whisk in milk until reaching desired consistency.
- Remove from heat and stir in cheese.
- Add salt & pepper, to taste
