Make a hearty open face sandwich for lunch or dinner in under 10 minutes.

In researching the origins, I found that this has very little to do with Manhattan and originated in Indiana in the '40's and is more and Indiana dish. Regardless, it is still good.

I will do the breakdowns per serving and you can multiply it as needed



  1. Step 1 1

    I started used instant mashed potatoes and made them according to the the instructions on the box.

  2. Step 2 2

    I used sliced roast beef from the deli but leftover potroast works well also. Put on a microwave safe plate and nuke on high for approx. 2 mins.

  3. Step 3 3

    For the bread, use 1 to 2 slices per person as the base. To toast or not to toast is a personal choice, I usually toast very lightly in the oven for a minute.

  4. Step 4 4

    Open gravy and warm on medium heat on the stove.

  5. Step 5 5

    Put 1 to 2 slices of bread or toast on a plate.

  6. Step 6 6

    Put a large scoop of mashed potatoes on top.

  7. Step 7 7

    Use a fork to put slices of roast beef on top of the bread or toast.

  8. Step 8 8

    Ladle gravy over the top of the roast beef, then serve.
