Tailgate Pressed Sandwiches - it's all in the spread!


It is the most wonderful time of the year...
Tailgate Season!
We are keeping it colorful, fresh, delicious and easy 
with an array of make ahead pressed sandwiches.

For each sandwich, 
I used fresh ciabatta, covered each side with amazing dressings or spreads from Toby's Family Foods, then piled on the ingredients accordingly.
Then each was wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, placed on a cookie sheet, 
then topped with another cookie sheet piled with heavy items on the top 
(cast iron pan, cookbooks, etc.).
Keep refrigerated at least 4 hours so the weights can do their job 
pressing the layers into deliciousness.
Then cut into individual sandwiches 
and either wrap in parchment paper/kraft paper and tie to hold together or use a toothpick to secure.
