Perfect Super Bowl Party Fare – the Hot Turkey and Hot Ham Party Sandwiches

You won’t be able to eat just one of these hot turkey and cranberry party sandwiches

Well, I just pulled up last year’s New Year’s Resolutions & realized I can reuse them for this year as I only accomplished two out of my sixteen resolutions; I kind of learned how to play chess and I played competitive singles tennis – not very well, but I did it. Ugh!! I’m always talking to the kids about setting goals and I’m setting a very poor goal setting example. So this year I’m going to resolve to conquer all of the rest of my unresolved resolutions!

In the meanwhile, the Super Bowl will be here before you know it and I have two new sandwich concoctions that are perfect football fare. I tweaked the Southern Living Hot Roast Beef Party Sandwich recipe to come up with a Hot Ham Party Sandwich recipe and a Hot Turkey and Cranberry Party Sandwich. So easy to make and super scrumptious – the perfect snack to eat while watching the Seattle Seahawks win the Super Bowl again!

    SEAHAWKS! I love your post Joan – – especially the part about our Hawks! I think I’ll try both of these for Sunday….they look really good…and nice and easy. My favorite turkey/cranberry sandwich is at Gorilla Bites down on 1st Street. It’s made like a grilled cheese sandwich – – just hits the spot, and I love the turkey/cranberry combination. Love your recipe posts Joan – – the stories, your writing style, the photos, and the recipes.
