Anytime Tailgate Sandwiches

Kendra W. Raymond


These little gems are irresistible!!! An absolute must for any tailgate party, outdoor or indoor! We often enjoy these with a cup of soup for dinner. I also like to take a pan to get-togethers where appetizers are served. I often double this recipe for a crowd. The fun part is customizing your ingredients! Enjoy!!!
