Tailgate Sandwiches


We all want a quick and easy dinner, right? Especially when we have football, dance, scouts, T-ball, gymnastics, piano, hockey, tutoring, and on and on. Here is one of the easiest and quickest recipes I have discovered. This will fill the bellies and take 3 minutes to prepare and 20 minutes to bake. I have heard these sandwiches called Tailgate Sandwiches, Hot Butter Sandwiches (that doesn’t sound so appealing) and Sliders. Because really, they would make a great football party food, a delicious Tailgate food, and a great “take with” sandwich because they are sliders. As I was making these, I was thinking what a great little sandwich to make with all of your leftover turkey and rolls after Thanksgiving! You could add stuffing, cranberry sauce, or whatever your family likes!

Tailgate Sandwiches

  • 12 Hawaiian Sweet Rolls, split (I leave the rolls in tact and slice the whole loaf as one. Then slice as individual rolls after the baking)
  • 1 lb shaved ham
  • 12 slices mozarella cheese
  • 1 tub cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon worcestershire sauce
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Put the bottom of the roll loaf in a greased 9×13 baking dish. Layer with cheese and then ham. Spread a thin layer of cream cheese on the top of the roll loaf. Place cream cheese side down. In a small bowl, combine the butter, parmesan cheese, worcestershire sauce and onion. Pour over sandwiches. Let stand for at least 20 minutes. Cover and Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve warm.

  1. Those sandwiches sound wonderful. I am a complete cheese fiend and love what you have put into them.

    I am taking over the Improv Challenge since Sheryl left so suddenly. If you would like to continue with us, please send me an email: frugalantics(at)yahoo(dot)com. I will be sending out more information at the end of the week. Hope to hear from you.

  2. Thanksgiving is just around the corner and this is a great tip for the day after Thanksgiving left-over’s! I will definitely have to try these out at one of my tail-gate parties. A simple and quick recipe is perfect for tailgating. Tailgating is one of my favorite hobbies, spending time with friends, cheering for my team and hosting the party. They always are a hit because of the food and thanks to my Tailgater from DISH. It also has a simple and quick set-up so it saves you all the hassle. I can watch my game in HD, its ideal for camping, tailgating, and BBQ’s. Since I work for DISH I can tell you that the Tailgater has a weather resistant cover, portable, and you don’t even need a second account for it.
