funeral sandwiches   

I have been obsessed with old recipes lately…like recipes passed down from generations or food you know the older ladies at church would bring to a potluck. 

I feel like I make the same food all the time so time to try out some new ideas!

I am in LOVE with this recipe and so is my family. Not only is it easy but the sauce is amazing! Literally I could drink it…and I might have on an occasion or 2. 

I NEVER buy store bought rolls because it’s to easy to make my own but for this recipe I decided to try it out. I think my rolls are just as good but mine never are as uniform as I would like. If you want to make your own bread, you can use this recipe. 

These are called funeral sandwiches because they are well known in the south as a dish you would bring to a funeral because you feed a lot of people.  But I am making these for a football watching party this weekend. This recipe feeds my family of 6 with extra for my husband’s lunch so if you need them to feed more, just double or triple the recipe. 

Do you have a favorite family recipe?
