people with my name
in the U.S.A.
I just found this on someones blog and had to try it. There is not another person in the U.S. with my same name. Our last name is pretty unique. I think we are almost always the only ones in the phone book. Alan has a great uncle who used to keep a condo here in Mesa and so used to be in there too. The funny thing about that is - he and I have the same first name - so people sometimes would get confused if they knew my true first name.
One of the perils of having a first name that you have never used - is that people sometimes call you that. One of the perils of that name being typically a man's name is that when you turn 18 in the 80's you get a notice to register for the draft. That really happened to me. What is worse is when Alan and I were first married I went to the DMV to get my new driver's license. After I got my picture taken I was waiting for them to call my name to come up to the window and get the license. They kept calling my first name with my new last name and it took a very long time for me to register that they were calling me. I kept thinking to myself, "why doesn't that man get up and pick up his license?"
On to the yummy recipe. These sandwiches are so simple - but so delicious. I am calling them conference sandwiches because DeAnn served them to us during this last conference. She got the recipe from her daughter Kelly who had them at a church function of some kind. So maybe it is a good old Mormon recipe like funeral potatoes, chicken/cream cheeses crescents, or any variation on jello salad - but I had never had them before. The secret is the sauce and the refrigerating. Even though the sauce sounds gross - do not leave anything out - and make sure you can refrigerate them for a few hours before you cook them.
15 Costco dinner rolls
lunch meat (your choice)
for the sauce: UPDATED!! since I made these last night!
1/2 stick butter (melted)
1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp garlic powder (I actually used minced garlic because I'm not fond of garlic powder)
1 Tbs sesame or poppy seeds
Slice the rolls in half and put meat and cheese on each one. Place in a 9x13 pan and brush all of the butter mixture over rolls. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for a few hours (you could make in the morning for dinner that night) Cook at 350 degrees for 25 - 30 minutes.
Updated: I made these for my dinner group and I made 3 pans of 15 and one tray of 20 - and I made the sauce recipe x 3 and it was just right for all four. If you want to make these for a large group you can get 20 - 24 onto a jelly roll cookie sheet.
