Party Panache, Club Sub Spirals

This giant baked submarine sandwich has lots of possibilities,

layered with tasty deli meats and cheese,

it can be sliced into appetizer servings

or cut into larger pieces for a meal

And anything goes!

you can use up what you have in your refrigerator

Leftover ham, turkey, deli meat, bacon,

cheddar cheese, swiss cheese,

onions, peppers, jalapenos,

let your imagination run wild!

We arrived at the beach house last week to a totally empty refrigerator

{we had to throw absolutely everything away after Hurricane Sally shut the power off for 5 days}

I didn’t have anything but what I brought with me,

ham, salami, cheddar slices and bacon

and my favorite condiment, Maple Bacon Aioli

Roll out the dough* on a piece of parchment paper

Spread it with whatever condiment you like,

Maple Bacon Aioli, mayonnaise, mustard, or salad dressing

*I used Pillsbury French Bread dough in a can,

but you could use puff pastry, crescent roll dough or sheet,

or pizza crust dough, just adjust baking time

Layer the meats and cheese, and whatever else you want,

evenly on top of the dough

Now, here’s where the parchment paper comes in handy,

use it to help you roll the dough into a log,

tucking the filling in as you roll

and repairing tears if necessary

Refrigerate dough roll for 1 hour or more

to help it keep it’s shape before baking

Bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until golden

Cut into slices and serve

We noshed on this while watching our 2 favorite teams

battle on the football field

And some of us enjoyed a dip in the pool

With push-up pops for dessert

    That’s great. Pillsbury makes so many options in a can, and I love every one I’ve tried. I’ll have to try the French bread like this sometime.
    I thought at first AL wasn’t playing because of Saban being +, but Mr P told me otherwise. Looks like you guys always know how to have fun football weekends!

    • I do love Pillsbury canned dough, so handy for whipping up tasty bites! I don’t think anything could stop Bama from playing their biggest game of the season, but poor Saban, I know it was making him crazy not to be there!

  4. Those sandwich spirals look delish. They look easy to eat too! Great for parties! Have a wonderful week, Jenna!

  5. Sounds like perfect football food:@)
