Baked Sandwiches—Redo

 "Ladies and gentlemen, I have been to the Great Wall of China, I have seen the Pyramids of Egypt, I've even witnessed a grown man satisfy a camel. But never in all my years as a sportscaster have I witnessed something as improbable, as impossible, as what we've witnessed here today! "

If you'll recall, I wasn't entirely sold on the baked sandwiches I made a few weeks ago, finding the sauce a tad too sweet for my family's liking. Which was a bit of a shame, because they're so friggin' easy that I'd like to add them to my regular meal rotation.

So last week I wanted to make a simple lunch for Husband and I and I had four leftover rolls and a few slices of lunch meat left from when I made these the first time. I hate wasting food, so I decided to give them a try again, but this time with Italian dressing drizzled over the top in place of the buttery mustard—and—brown sugar sauce. I also went with full slices of cheese instead of halves.

And dude. YUM. They were so, so good. And because I didn't have to cook a sauce, they were actually even easier.

So yeah—if you're like us and not big on sweet sauces, just sub in Italian dressing and do everything else exactly the same. I'll definitely be making these again, especially if I find the rolls on sale for $0.79 like I did last time. 

Baked sandwich with Italian dressing and bbq chips. YUM.


  1. Ok, I'm adding this to my list to make of food. I hope it turns out good. Yours look amazing..

  2. They really are awesome. The original instructions (I hesitate to call it a "recipe") can be found here:
