Cooking for a family, while making family time

Game Day Sandwich Bites

Game Day Sandwich Bites

Alright Mommy Spicers, you guys know by now that I love my crescent dough. It’s so versatile: pizzas, biscuit cups, rolls ups, monkey bread and now sandwich bites! I’ve long made croissant sandwiches or pigs in a blanket, especially on game days and they’re always a favorite. With so many tiny hands in our household I decided to make these bite size. What a perfect appetizer they turned out to be, pair with your favorite dipping sauce or condiment and you’re good to go.


1 can croissant crescent dough
4 slices medium cut lunch meat
4 slices sandwich cheese of choice
1 tablespoon butter, melted
Everything bagel seasoning

Makes 16 sandwiches


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. On a large cutting board open up your can of crescent dough, separate all 8 pre-cut croissant triangles, then cut each of those in half. End result should be 16 skinny triangles. Next cut each of your 4 slices of lunch meat and cheese lengthwise into 4 long slices. Layer onto each croissant triangle a piece of lunch meat and a piece of cheese. Now you roll them up same as you would regular croissants and place them onto your baking sheet. Melt one tablespoon of butter in the microwave and brush onto the top of each sandwich, then sprinkle with everything bagel seasoning. Bake in the oven 10-12 minutes or until a light golden brown. Take out and serve warm with dipping sauce of your choice. Leftover sandwiches will keep in the fridge for 48 hours.

These are EASY! 5 ingredients and come together in under 15 minutes. We often make croissant sandwiches like these for dinner and pair them with soup. Same as with so many of my recipes, these are flexible! Mommy Spice is all about cooking and family time but also cooking food your family will eat. No two families have the same taste preferences, heck my kids don’t even agree half of the time.


Make these to appeal to your crew. Choose the meat and cheese combination your family can agree on, or skip the meat and keep these vegetarian. Substitute spinach, sun-dried tomatoes or whatever you like in place of the meat. We love to pair these with a honey or whole grain mustard, ranch, whipped cream cheese or marinara sauce. Keep it classic with ham and swiss or turkey and cheddar. You could also take these Italian with pepperoni and mozzarella, and substitute Italian seasoning for everything bagel. Play around with different flavors and as always get the kids involved! Let them help roll them up or sprinkle on the seasoning. Leftovers of these bite size sandwiches are also a hit in the lunch box. Game day bite size sandwiches on Sunday, make for easy lunch packing Monday morning.
