Super Bowl + Sunday = True LOVE Always! At least around our house, it does. Even if you are not a huge football fan, there is oh’ so ~ much ~ to ~ LOVE about Super Bowl Sunday.
FOOD ~ FOOD ~ oh’ for the LOVE of FOOD! Along with Thanksgiving, this day is easily ranked up there among my top three of favorite food days. Y to the UMMY!
With that being said, DO NOT ~ I repeat DO NOT turn down any invites to a Super Bowl Fiesta AND if you get invited to more than one GO! . . . . Go to all and eat to your hearts’ content. Good times will be had, I guarantee it.
I also vote that if you don’t know a soul having a Super Bowl party, do one of two things. A. Have your own party, with ALL of your favorite foods and desserts and hoopla! B. Consider yourself invited to my house! :J

Football Hero Sandwich
- 6 Rhodes Dinner Rolls, thawed to room temperature
- 1 egg, beaten
- Mayonnaise, if desired
- 3 lettuce leaves
- 3 slices deli ham
- 3 slices cheese
Cut ½ off of one roll and roll into a 10-inch rope.
Cut the rope into 4 segments for the laces. Set aside.
Press remaining 5 ½ 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. 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 @ 350°F 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool and then slice. Spread with mayonnaise, if desired and stuff with lettuce, deli meat and cheese.
