Football-Shaped Sandwich Ideas

3 02 2016

IMG_5248In the weeks leading up to Super Bowl Sunday, we get inundated with menu ideas for the big game. I fluctuate between staying simple and tackling all the recipes I discover. This football sandwich is a touchdown in my household because it’s super easy and everyone likes it. That’s a win-win in my playbook! It works for any football game from professional teams to peewee leagues, and even for a fun lunchbox surprise.

I made a grilled cheese version with cheddar laces on the top, but any filling of your choice works between two slices of bread shaped into a football. Cheese laces pair well with many sandwich flavors, but several lace options complement a variety of sandwiches. Try piping on mayonnaise, mustard, ketchup, cream cheese, peanut butter, or frosting onto your savory or sweet sandwiches. Embellish them a bit more by making smaller laces and leaving room to stripe both ends of your bread. You’ll easily have these football sandwiches ready by kickoff!
