What to serve French dip sliders with:

A French dip sandwich with au jus tastes amazing with a side of French fries! Au jus also makes a great fry dipping sauce. Other popular sides are loaded potatoes, hashbrowns, potato chips, etc.

Variations of French dip sliders:

  • omit cheese-some people think the cheese isn’t necessary when dipping the french dip sandwich in au jus. This is also a great way to cut calories.
  • skip the broil-putting butter and garlic salt on the rolls will still give the rolls flavor. Broiling it just adds more of a grilled taste. You can skip the broilling part if you would like.
  • cut calories-taking out the butter and cheese would really cut back on calories if you are looking to do so.
  • ketchup-if you don’t like au jus, you can dip your french dip sliders in ketchup, mayo, mustard, etc. Some people even serve french dip with horseradish.
  • different cheese-swiss cheese is traditional for french dip sliders. This recipe requires provolone for uniqueness. You can use any other type of cheese you want as well. What cheese for french dip sandwich is up to you!

How to store French dip sandwich:

  • fridge-store this recipe in an air tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. How to reheat french dip sandwich is fairly easy. I recommend putting it in the air fryer to reheat in 2 parts: roast and bun. That way parts are over heated compared to the other.
  • freezer-I have not tried freezing this recipe. If you would like to try it, go for it! Let me know how it goes.
