We are a football family.
Both Joe and I went to Penn State, and we are in love with our alma mater. We rarely miss a Penn State football game. We started Grace watching football when she was very small.
It was a hard sell at first, but in the last year or so, she’s become pretty interested.
When Chef Jill Houk from Sara Lee said her son would be carrying this Touchdown Sandwich in his lunch for Take Your Whole Grain Sandwich to School Day (today!), I knew that I would post it for Grace’s Kitchen.
- 2 slices Sara Lee Soft and Smooth 100% Whole Wheat Bread*
- 1 slice Sara Lee Pre-Sliced Baby Swiss Cheese* (I’m not a fan of Swiss cheese. I would use a sharp cheddar instead.)
- 4 slices Sara Lee Pre-Sliced Honey Roasted Turkey*
- 4 cucumber slices
- 4 strips roasted red peppers
- 1 Tablespoon guacamole
- Spread each slice of bread with half of the guacamole.
- Top one slice with cheese, turkey, cucumber and peppers.
- Place the second slice of bread on top of sandwich and cut into a football shape.
Chef Jill says,
For my son, who is football-obsessed this time of year, the sandwich is a touchdown because it’s shaped like a football. He’d never trade this for junk food!
For me, who is obsessed with health, this sandwich is a touchdown because it packs whole grains and antioxidants, with lean protein and healthy fats.
Joe, Grace, and I all loved this sandwich. Its name is just the icing on the cake the extra point.
