Looks like a regular, cheesy grilled sandwich right? Well, there's something different about this sandwich! I made it in a casserole dish in my oven!
If you need to make several grilled sandwiches at once (tomato soup & grilled cheese sandwich dinner?!?!) this is a perfect technique.
Oven Grilled Sandwiches
.....it's easy peasey rice & cheesy.......
-favorite toppings & seasonings
First - set your oven to 425 degrees. Go ahead and put in a metal casserole. Keep the dish in there until all sandwiches are prepped and the oven has reached the set temperature. This makes the pan super hot and will make your sandwiches crispy.
Next - create an assembly line and prep your sandwiches. Be creative and have fun! I used mustard, smoked turkey, dill pickles and american cheese. Once everything is assembled, smear some mayo on the outsides of your sandwiches === yes, mayo! Mayo is the secret to extra crispy sandwiches. It's a combination of the high heat of the pan and the fat in the mayo.
Finally - once your oven, and your pan, reaches 425 degrees carefully pull the pan from the oven and add your prepped sandwiches. You will hear the sizzle! Quickly put the pan back in the oven and bake for 3-5 minutes. Remove from the oven and flip the sandwiches, then bake another 3-5 minutes. If you really pile on the fillings, you may need to bake a little longer to get everything hot and melted :)
Carefully remove your sandwiches, cut and eat!

One of my family's favorite desserts is chocolate chip cookies. Actually, chocolate chip cookies may be my husband's all-time favorite dessert. But sometimes it can be tough to commit to baking a whole batch of cookies. So in honor of Chocolate Chip Cookie day, my husband and I came up with this Chocolate Chip Cookie Casserole.
The bottom layer is the chocolate chip cookie recipe I got from my aunt and I have been baking for years. Buttery, chewy, soft, this is the best chocolate chip cookie recipe I have found. I believe the secret to these cookies is using butter flavored shortening, instead of plain shortening. It's worth an extra trip to the store to make sure you have some before making these cookies. Or do what I do and always keep some in your pantry.
Actually, I'll just wait here while you go get some. Trust me, you won't regret it.
Did you get some? Good, on to the recipe!
Baking these chocolate chip cookies in a casserole dish and then adding graham crackers, white chocolate pudding and ganache is the perfect way to celebrate Chocolate Chip Cookie day!
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
1 cup butter flavored shortening
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 1/4 all purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet but feel free to use any kind you want!)
6 oz box of white chocolate pudding mix
3 cups milk
8-10 Graham crackers
2 cups semi-sweet chocolate chips
1/8-1/4 cup of milk
Using a mixer, cream together the butter, shortening, both sugars and vanilla just until blended.
Mix in eggs. Then mix in flour, baking powder and baking soda.
Using a wooden spoon, mix in chocolate chips. Be careful not to overmix the dough. Spread dough in a greased casserole pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes. Let cool completely.
Make pudding according to the directions for quick set pudding on the box.
Once the cookie layer is completely cooled, put one layer of graham crackers on the top. Then spread the set pudding on top of the graham crackers.
For the ganache,
These sandwiches y'all..... yum. They are SO easy and tasty! Adapt the recipe and preparation to fit your schedules and tastes, but the base recipe is a crowd pleaser!
Baked Meatball Sandwiches
We enjoyed these so much, I made a second batch! Even my toddlers were devouring these sandwiches!
Baked Meatball Sandwiches makes for a great party or tailgate food -- simply cut out the baking step and let guests 'build' their own sandwiches with pre-sliced buns, hot meatballs from the slow cooker and a variety of toppings (pesto anyone?!?).
This has become a family favorite! The buns are full of meat, cheese and spices. You may think the buns would become soggy but, they don't! These are even good the next day.
1 (24 count) Hawaiian Rolls or Regular Rolls
2 lbs hamburger
1 bell pepper, seeded and diced
1/2 medium onion, diced
1 (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes (drained)
1 Tblsp Dijon mustard
3 tsp minced garlic
3-4 dashes liquid smoke
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
12 slices cheese of your choice, I use either Colby Jack or Mozzarella
1 stick butter
1 tsp Dijon mustard
1/4 tsp powdered garlic
1/4 tsp powdered onion
Brown hamburger, green peppers and onion, drain. Place back in skillet and add drained tomatoes, mustard, garlic, liquid smoke, salt and pepper. Cook until most of liquid is gone.
Slice the rolls in half and place bottom halves in 9 x 13 casserole pan. Spread hamburger mixture over the rolls, layer slices of cheese over hamburger and place top of buns on top.
In microwave, melt butter, add mustard, garlic and onion, mix well. Pour over rolls, let soak in for at least 30 minutes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until cheese is completely melted.
