Football Hero Sandwich

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...

This sandwich is for all the Football Fanatics.

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
  • tomato
  • 3 lettuce leaves
  • 3 slices deli ham
  • 3 slices cheese

Let the rolls thaw to room temperature, about 1-2 hours

Cut this rope into 4 segments to be used for the ball laces.

Set aside.

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.
