Dagwood would love these!
Why is it that whenever I think of a sandwich, Dagwood comes to mind?? While none of these "stack" up to one of his specials, I think you will enjoy them. Most of us think of a sandwich as something to eat at noon, there is no reason why you can't surprise your family with some special sandwiches at dinnertime. Serve them with a salad, or a bowl of homemade soup, and watch them clean their plates!
Some of these recipes are not your traditional sandwiches, but trust me - they are delicious!
Thaw one loaf frozen bread dough and spread out on a cookie sheet, about 8-1/2 by 11 size. Brush with melted butter.
Sprinkle with a mixture of ¼ tsp. garlic - salt, powder, or minced, ¼ tsp. oregano, ½ tsp. parsley, ¼ tsp. Italian seasoning, 1 c. shredded Cheddar cheese and 1 c. shredded mozzarella cheese.
Place pepperoni slices generously on top. Roll up and pinch ends.
Brush top with butter and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Cut in slices to serve.
Cut French or Italian bread lengthwise.
Top with slices of Cheddar or American cheese, chunky salsa, sliced chicken or turkey breast, and top with a second slice of cheese.
Bake on a cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Taco in a Bag
The kids will love this - make sure you clip out this recipe for summer picnics!
2 lbs. ground beef
2 pkgs. Taco mix
Sliced ripe olives
Shredded Cheddar cheese
1 oz. pkgs. Doritos - Nacho flavor is best. You can buy these in bags of 12 individual packages at most supermarkets, Sam's or Walmart Super Stores.
Prepare taco meat according to package directions. Line up other ingredients on the counter. Each person squeezes a bag of Doritos until it pops, then squeeze some more to coarsely crush the chips.
Move along the counter, putting your favorite toppings right in the bag, starting with the Taco meat and ending with the cheese.
Eat right out of the bag. When done, throw it in the garbage and enjoy your evening!
