Football Shaped Sandwiches

Happy Friday my friends! It’s time for another yummy Tailgate recipe. We have enjoyed Naked Wings with Three Sauces, Homemade Pizza Pockets, Barbecue Pork Sliders, Queso Dip and Pico de Gallo.

Today we have these cute little Football Shaped Sandwiches! Who doesn’t love a good sandwich to snack on before the big game? They can be made up ahead or assembled at the game, easy to transport and the ideas are endless for fillings.

We started with a loaf of Pumpernickel. Walmart has a relatively new division called Marketside and we love it! Their breads are great, we especially like the soft Garlic Breadsticks. On a recent trip to Walmart headquarters, I had the opportunity to try some of the breads that will be offered closer to the Holidays, Cranberry Walnut, Chocolate and others. The prices are great too. Yes you can make your own at home, which is typically the more budget friendly way, but for only around $2 a loaf, sometimes you can’t even buy the ingredients for that.

Anyway…back to our Football Sandwiches

Slice the bread on an angle, then using a Football shaped cookie cutter, simply cut of the sandwiches. I didn’t have a Football cookie cutter, so I just used a large round cutter and formed it like a Football. Tip: use the leftover scraps to make croutons, they go great on salads.

We had some leftover chicken from the Beer Can Chicken we made earlier in the week, so Doug cut up the chicken and I whipped up a simple Chicken Salad by adding some green onions, celery and chopped apple, a little Hellmann’s and some salt and pepper to taste.

We also used thinly sliced Pastrami and Provolone Cheese, but of course, your favorite lunchmeat would be great too. Add a little spicy brown mustard to each of the sandwiches.

For the lines on the Football, add Hellmann’s Mayo to a plastic squeeze bottle and simply draw them on. Be sure to add them either right before serving or up to an hour before, the mayo will soak into the bread.

Serve up these fun little Football Shaped Sandwiches at your next Tailgate Party or even on a Sunday afternoon during the big game, your family will think you are a star!
