Guest blogger Stephanie from Plain Chicken brings you a great recipe for the next game or tailgate party. What better way to enjoy the mayhem than with a football-shaped sandwich? Rhode...
For this week's Rhodes Guest Blog Post, I chose to make the Football Hero Sandwich. We are football crazies at our house, so this recipe was perfect for us. It was a very easy recipe, but it does requires a little planning. The rolls take 1 -2 hours to thaw, and you will also need 30-45 minutes for the football to rise before baking.
What you'll need:
- 6 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
- 1 egg beaten
- mayonnaise, if desired
- 3 lettuce leaves
- 3 slices deli ham
- 3 slices cheese
Let the rolls thaw to room temperature, about 1-2 hours
Cut 1/2 of one roll off
Roll it into a 10-inch rope
Cut this rope into 4 segments to be used for the ball laces.
Press the remaining 5 1/2 rolls into a football shape, leaving the top mounded and edges thinner.
Pull the ends to exaggerate the points.
Place on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray (I used parchment paper)
With a knife, make a slight cut across the top of the football, not quite reaching the points.
Lay each lace across the cut.
Using a toothpick or knife, push the ends of the laces down into the football securing them tightly.
Brush with egg and let rise for 30 minutes.
Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
Let cool and then slice.
Spread with mayonnaise, if desired, and stuff with lettuce, deli meat and cheese.
