A Bumper Crop of Sandwiches
A Bumper Crop Of Sandwiches, is what this Kraft ad from 1974 promises. The scan did not turn out very well but in the original ad there are many different flavors of sliced sandwich cheese pictured. There are the standard American and Swiss along with Pimento slices, Cheez'N Bacon slices, Old English slices and Monterey, Brick, Onion-chive, Munster and Jalapeno pepper singles. Usually I only see American and Swiss slices in my grocery store nowadays, so I was surprised to see that they had made so many other flavors.
The recipes are for Ham Salad Boats, Ham Brunchwich, Italian Style Cheese Sandwich and Harvest Time Sandwich.
The Hams Salad Boat sound rather tasty:
Ham Salad Boats
2 cups finely chopped ham
1 cup cooked peas
1 tablespoon chopped onion
1 hard cooked egg, chopped
Miracle Whip Salad Dressing
6 French bread rolls
Kraft Monterey Jack Singles Process Cheese Food
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Combine ham, peas, onion, egg and enough salad dressing to moisten; mix lightly. Split roll in half lengthwise; scoop out center of both halves to form a shell. For each sandwich, fill shell with alternating amount of ham mixture and cheese food; cover with top half of roll. Place rolls on baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees, 15 minutes. 5 sandwiches.
