Great Sandwiches for Football Season

Author: Linda Wilson

Here in Texas, we call it "Friday Night Lights". High School Football Season! Yes, the madness of high school football is upon us. For busy families who need to meet and eat at the football field, here are a couple of hot sandwiches, baked in foil, that are easy to transport. They are also easy to make ahead and reheat after the game if necessary. For football season this year, try my Pizza Burgers and Easy Stromboli Sandwiches. Add some fresh veggies, dip, soft drinks, and you're good to go!


1 lb lean ground beef

1 large onion, diced

1/2 tsp oregano

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp celery salt

1/2 tsp basil

1/8 tps pepper

8 oz can tomato sauce OR pizza sauce

1 cup diced mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cook ground beef and onion over medium high heat until meat is browned. Drain meat mixture, rinse with hot water and allow to drain well. Add spices and mix in thoroughly. Add sauce and cheese. Put into 12 whole-wheat hamber buns and wrap individually in foil. Bake at 350 degrees for 18 minutes.

Note: These burgers can be frozen and reheated individually as needed.


1 lb ground beef

1 lb bulk sausage

6 oz tomato sauce

1 cup chopped onion

4 tbsp chopped green bell pepper

3/4 tsp salt, optional

2/3 cup water

1/4 tsp oregano

4 tbsp Parmesan cheese

Shredded mozzarella cheese

French bread or French rolls

Brown meats until all red disappears and drain well. Wipe pan with a paper towel to remove excess grease. Return meats to pan and add tomato sauce, vegetables, salt and water. Cook 10 minutes. Remove from heat and add oregano and Parmesan cheese. Scoop the center out of the bread so it will hold meat filling. (You can put in a zip-lock type bag and save for another use.) Add the fillling to the bread and top with the mozzarella cheese. Wrap sandwiches in aluminum foil. Bake at 400 degrees for a few minutes until bread is warmed and cheese is melted.
