The "Football" Sandwich is a football shaped sandwich which includes a cheesy white sauce. These sandwiches are my kids favourite afternoon snacks. This is one of the one reasons that I chose to share this recipe in my yesterday live instagram session. The marinated bread with lots of herbs and butter is so tempting.
