• Cooking Time:
  • Servings: 3
  • Preparation Time: 10


  • 3 Rhodes Texas™ rolls, thawed but still cold
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • mayonnaise, if desired
  • 3 lettuce leaves
  • 3 sliced deli ham meat
  • 3 slices cheese


  • Cut 1/4 off of one roll and roll it into a 10-inch rope. Cut the rope into 4 segments for the laces. Set aside. Press remaining 2 3/4 rolls into a football shape leaving the top mounded and edges thinner. Pull the ends to exaggerate the points. Place on a baking sheet sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. With a knife, make a slight cut across the top of the football not quite reaching the points.
  • Lay each lace across the cut. Using a toothpick or knife, push the ends of the laces down into the football securing them tightly.
  • Brush with egg and let rise for 30 minutes. Bake at 350°F 20 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool and then slice. Spread with mayonnaise, if desired and stuff with lettuce, deli meat and cheese.
