Today marks the beginning of “Family-Friendly Food Week” here at I Dig Pinterest, and I wanted to start it off by sharing the recipe for these delectable “Boat Sandwiches”.
I was first introduced to them by my sister-in-law, who made them when we were visiting our in-laws. I ate just one bite and knew these needed to make an appearance at our dinner table…frequently.
She told me how she made them and I of course forgot to write it down. Then one day randomly I started having a craving for these tasty morsels, but I couldn’t remember how to put them together, so I grudgingly let the craving pass. Then, fast forward a few weeks, I was cruising Pinterest and saw a picture there that came from my sister-in-law’s, sister’s blog (sorry to get complicated on you), where she shared the recipe for these awesome sandwiches. I literally squealed with delight, and pinned it on the spot.
They are so easy to make and you wouldn’t believe how good they taste! I’ve served them with soup multiple times, but they can also hold their own as a main course with a side salad and veggies. I hope your family loves these as much as we do!
24 White Rhodes Rolls
9 oz package of thinly sliced ham or turkey
8 oz shredded Mozzarella, Swiss, or Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup melted butter or margarine
Grated Parmesan cheese ( I use the powdered kind and it works great too)
Italian Seasoning, or any other seasoning (optional)
Let rolls thaw at room temperature for approximately 3 hours, but don’t let rise all the way. Flatten the rolls out into a circle. Put meat and cheese on one side. Fold over and pinch together. Brush with melted butter. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and seasoning. Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes, or until lightly browned.
