Reinventing the Sandwich!
I had a luncheon the other day and it was a total blast! Houseparty.com invited me to participate in the Kraft Foods Ultimate Sandwich Makeover House Party™. They sent me yummy Sandwich Shop Mayo, Oscar Mayer Carving Board Meats, and Kraft Big Slice Cheeses. I supplied a table load of salad, fruit, chips and sandwich making goodies. Nine of my girlfriends showed up for the feast.
This is what it looked like:
Becce made the first sandwich. She named it Large. The ironic thing is it is one of the smallest and most traditional sandwiches re-invented! There’s turkey, Swiss cheese, peperoncini,tomato, lettuce and dill pickle. Becce used the Herb and Garlic Sandwich Shop Mayo. She said it wasn’t the size of her sandwich that was large — it was the flavor!
Because I had the party during Lent and served ham, Rosalie named her sandwich the “Goyim Special”. She built it with ham, Swiss Cheese, lettuce, onion, dill pickle, tomato, and the luscious Horseradish Dijon Mustard Sandwich Shop Mayo. Wouldn’t you just love a bite?
Mona is a vegetarian. Here is her Cheese Sandwich Deluxe. She built it with Swiss, Cheddar, Pepper Jack and Bleu cheeses, French Fried Onion Rings, lettuce, red pepper, and the Herb and Garlic Mayo. She said it was the best cheese sandwich she’d ever had.
I didn’t get everyone else’s sandwiches photographed before they were gone! I purchased several kinds of bread and Irene chose Sourdough for her chicken, tomato & pepper jack sandwich. She also used the Garlic and Herb Sandwich Shop Mayo. I wish I had a photo of April’s “Noah” the sandwich she made from “two of everything!” Ardi’s Ham & Turkey Bleu Duo looked so yummy I copied it, although I crossed it with Mona’s cheese sandwich by adding Swiss and Pepper Jack cheeses as well. Torrey made a Turkey Swiss Garden Sandwich — it looked kind of like a salad between two slices of bread. Ruth Ann used the tiny slices of cocktail rye bread and made herself three different sandwiches, one from each meat. She called them the “Baby Ruth’s”. (There was no chocolate and no peanuts in any of them. )
Houseparty.com provided me with wonderful reusable, insulated lunch sacks, a sandwich makeover recipe booklet, AND wonderful coupons to give to my guests as party favors. Plus, I purchased 3 bottles of Sandwich Shop Mayo and gave them as door prizes. My guests are still raving about my wonderful party.
