Stripped Down Kitchen – Tailgate Football Party Part 3…Sandwiches

We continue our pursuit of the ultimate Football playoff party.
Finger foods are key to a good game day party, and sandwiches are the quintessential finger food. Chef Geoff strips down the popular ‘slider’ and provides a couple of unique variations. Rocky adds a French Dip lamb slider twist to the mix. We also strip down a sausage and pepper sandwich, and upgrade the turkey sandwich with a homemade mayonnaise. Tune in for some game day prep…
