A Winner of a Dinner!

Tonight I bring another recipe to you that is an absolute keeper! Again, this recipe is courtesy of "Taste of Home" magazine. This recipe is from Caryn Ross, of Norman, Oklahoma - she was a top winner in the "Real Women of Philadelphia Casting Competition", thanks to this recipe!

Sassy Tailgate Sandwiches

Prep: 10 minutes + standing time
Bake: 20 minutes
Yield: 1 dozen

12 Hawaiian sweet rolls, split
1 lb. shaved black forest ham
12 oz. Gruyere cheese, sliced
1 tub (8oz.) Philadelphia Chive and Onion Cream Cheese
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup grated parmesean cheese
1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 tsp dried minced onion

(Now here is where I'll tell you about the changes I made to the recipe. Instead of Gruyere cheese, I got baby  Swiss at the deli counter and had it sliced fairly thin. Also, I didn't have dried minced onion on hand, so I used a couple teaspoons of onion powder.)

1. Arrange bottoms of rolls in a greased 13x9 inch baking dish. Layer with ham and cheese. Spread each roll top with cream cheese, and place over cheese/ham/bottom roll. 

2. In a small bowl, combine the butter, Parmesan cheese, Worcestershire sauce and onion. Pour over sandwiches. Let stand for at least 20 minutes. 

3. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until heated through. 

So, no we weren't tailgating but these little sandwiches were ever-so-yummy! So simple and yet delicious and filling. 

The next time I make these, (which I might add would be good for brunch, lunch, dinner, to take to parties, etc), I am going to keep everything the same but try some good smoked turkey instead of ham. 

As for the kids, Vicky wasn't really thrilled with them but Trevor ate two of them, which is always a good sign. 

So these sandwiches get a two thumbs up from this mama! :-)
