To Build the Sandwich

  2. Add Chicken Ham slices on top of spread
  3. Place the top roll on the sandwich and ready to serve

Chef’s Note:

Prepare cream cheese mixture a day ahead.  For hot application, separate chicken ham slices in hotel pan, cover with foil and bake for 8-10 min. at 350°F. Hold in warmer until ready to build sandwiches. When sandwiches are built, place in pan and cook, uncovered, for 3-4 min. at 350°F. Hold in warmer until ready to serve.
