Cooking Directions:
Combine mayonnaise and cherry preserves in a bowl. Spread mayonnaise mixture on buns. Place bun bottoms on a 17 x 12-inch baking pan. Top with roast beef and cheddar. Broil 4 inches from the heat for 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted. Replace bun tops.

For added kick, add some horseradish to the mayonnaise mixture.

Poke pretzels into tops for antlers. Cut out small circles from cheddar for eyes. Dot cheddar with mayonnaise; attach peppercorns for pupils. Pipe mayonnaise on bun tops; place eyes. Thread olives and cherry on toothpicks; attach for noses.
