Are you ready...heck yeah, damn right...Hotty Toddy, gosh a mighty....Ole Miss football has its official kick off this weekend. You may not be familiar with us lately. You may, however, know those Manning boys--Peyton, Eli and their father Archie who played at Ole Miss in the '70's. We will spend part of our Labor Day weekend attending the University of MS vs the University of Memphis game in Memphis. This is our first year in ten years not to have a child at Ole Miss--I've had lots of practice tailgating! I thought I might share one of our favorite tailgate recipes. It's always a hit, can be done ahead of time, and fills up a lot of hungry people!
Horizontally slice a loaf of French bread. Drizzle both sides with olive oil and Italian seasoning. Top one side with ham, salami, and pepperoni slices. Top the meat with olive salad. I buy mine in the deli section or salad bar section. You may need to chop this a little more finely if the olives are large. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese . Top with other side of bread. Wrap tightly in aluminum foil. The sandwich can be made ahead of time up to this point. On game day, bake at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes. To keep this warm, I wrap it in newspaper tightly. Be sure to take a serrated knife to slice it at the tailgate. This is always a winner!
