I had a really hard time unrolling the dough. Any tips?

We loved this! I made it using shredded Italian blend, and OM Deli Fresh roast beef (patted dry) and sprinkled the buttery top with Parmesan cheese, garlic salt and parsley. They were a little moist on the bottom, but the top was nice and golden brown. We didn't use any dipping sauce and they were still super yummy. The hubby and I agreed with other suggestions and think a horseradish sauce would be yummy and. Definitely a keeper recipe and I can see so many different variations to keep it fresh--ham and swiss, pepperoni and mozzarella, beef and cheddar. Yum!

I made this the other night and really liked it. I could not find fontina cheese either, so I used shredded mozzarella & shredded cheddar. Will try some of the other reviewers' suggestions next time. The horseradish would be great. Was not a big fan of the dipping sauce, though. Not sure why the soup had to be thickened with a rue.

Made this the other night for my fiance', and he really enjoyed it. I didn't make the soup for the dipping. He suggested horseradish sauce. But didn't have any on hand. Will make this again.

It was very good. I used good roast beef, and swiss cheese, and Italian seasoning instead of basil. It was a hit at my luncheon. It would be awesome with some spinach leaves inside or little bit of sun dried tomato - just don't want anything gooey....

We made this last night and thought it was great! My bread was not soggy at all, so I'm not sure what the other reviewer did that made it that way. And, we loved the dipping sauce. I guess it's just a matter of taste, but we will sure be making this again and again. The only variation that I made was with the cheese because I could not find any fontina, so I used shredded mozzarella.

Just finished making this and it was delicious! I omitted the parmesan cheese and basil on top and used a Swiss cheese slices on the inside. I also was out of foil, so when it came time to cover it...I just flipped it on it's side. (to keep bottom from burning). My family was soooo impressed with this. It was a little difficult to unroll the bread, but just take your time and I think it helps if the roll just came out of the fridge. Can't wait to take one of these to a church potluck!

This was really delicious and easy to prepare. I didn't have any trouble unrolling the loaf. I'd definitely make this again and again. Loved the dip, too. Thanks, from a fellow contestant!!

Hubby loved this, and so did I. We did not like dipping sauce though- it was way too salty for our taste, but the French Dip Roll was fabulous!

I ditto the last reviewer, impossible to un-roll the French bread,
I bought a loaf of bread sliced it long ways put deli roast beef, fontina cheese and spread "horsey" sauce on the bread. Wrapped it in foil and baked 15 minutes. Excellent
