In a small bowl mix garlic, parsley and butter together. Butter outside of Kaiser rolls (tops and bottoms). Spread 1 tbsp (15 mL) barbecue sauce on inside of each bun half. Place 2 bottoms butter-side down in skillet (or 4 if using large griddle). Add 2 oz (60 g) of sliced Cheddar and 2 oz (60 g) of sliced roast beef on each bun. Complete sandwiches by placing Kaiser tops on, butter-side up.

Place skillet on stovetop and cook over medium-low heat for approximately 7-10 minutes or until golden brown. Carefully turn sandwiches with a spatula and continue cooking for 5-7 minutes or until golden brown and cheese has melted.

Carefully remove from pan and serve immediately.


Serve with baked beans to complete the Western theme.
