Yesterday was the first day of Fall and the weather was beautiful. This is my favorite time of year, I just love all the colors, smells and activities that are associated with Autumn. I have been drinking pumpkin spice coffee for a few weeks now. If you missed my post on my homemade Pumpkin Syrup be sure to read that post on my blog.
My family loves this big sandwich that I have named Monster Sandwich for 12, even though our family of 3 can almost eat the whole thing ourselves. It’s the perfect time to make this with fresh garden tomatoes that are available this time of year. I am putting the recipe into a PDF format so you can print it for yourself.
MONSTER SANDWICH FOR 12(1)
MONSTER SANDWICH FOR 12
1/2 cup of old fashioned oats
2 tablespoons of softened butter
1/2 cup of boiling water
In a large bowl, combine the oats, boiling water and butter; let stand 5 minutes.
1 Box of Hot Roll Mix -16 oz (I use Pillsbury but the store brands are good too)
3/4 cup of warm water (110º – 115º)
2 eggs (beaten)
1 tablespoon of dried, minced onion
Meanwhile, dissolve the yeast ( from the box of Hot Roll Mix) with the warm water.
Add to the oat mixture (after you have waited the 5 minutes) and add the 2 eggs and 1 T of minced onion.
Add the flour from the Box of Hot Roll mix; stir well. (do not knead)
Spread dough onto a 10″ circle on a well-greased pizza pan (I like to use parchment paper on my sheet).
Spray some plastic wrap with cooking spray and cover the dough with the plastic wrap and let rise in a warm place, until double, about 45 minutes.
1 tsp. garlic salt
1 tablespoon garlic salt
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 tablespoon sesame seeds
Bake at 350º for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown.
Remove from pan; cool on a wire rack.
Split lengthwise with a serrated knife.
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
4 tsp prepared mustard
1/2 tsp prepared horseradish
Combine mayonnaise, mustard and horseradish; spread over cut sides of loaf.
Layer with the remaining filling ingredients.
8 oz of thinly sliced fully cooked ham
6 oz of cheese of your choice – I used yellow American, put have used provolone and Swiss cheese.
1 medium, sweet onion, thinly sliced
2 large tomatoes
1 green pepper thinly sliced (I omitted this in mine)
Cut into wedges to serve.
This sandwich is great for football parties too!
