Sandwiches are always KEY for menu planning for game day. They’re a go-to choice for so many reasons. For one, you can prepare them early in the day and have them ready at game time.
Next up is that they’re cold so you don’t have to worry about slow cookers or something else to try to keep them warm all through the game. Plus, they’re hand-held, which always makes game time easier.
And, of course, the number one reason we love sandwiches for game day is that they’re delicious!!!
This year, for the big game we’re have a sandwich that is a cut above the everyday. This Shareable Ham and Cheese Sandwich with Mustard Aioli is jumbo sized so it’s perfect for cutting in half, in fourths, or however you want to divide it up.
The key to a great sandwich is quality deli meat and cheeses. That’s why I start with Kretschmar ham. It’s hand-trimmed and made with a unique hardwood smoking process designed to maximize flavor. That totally shines through in its taste.
For cheese I use Kretschmar Colby Jack. It’s so creamy and delicious, which isn’t surprising since Kretschmar’s premium Wisconsin cheeses frequently win in competitions world-wide. Plus, all Kretschmar products have no MSG, are gluten free, and have no fillers.
I made the bread for this sandwich using my super easy no-knead bread recipe, but you can use ciabatta, french bread, or any nice large hunk of bread.
The last element to this sandwich (besides the lettuce and tomato) is an easy-to-make mustard aioli.
