Ingredients
Sandwich ingredients:
  • 1 4 oz. jar Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread
  • 12 Kings Hawaiian Savory Butter Rolls
  • 1/2 lb. Boars Head Baby Swiss Cheese, sliced thinly
  • 1/2 lb. Boars Head Smokemaster Beechwood Smoked Ham, shaved

Sauce ingredients:
  • 4 tablespoons butter, unsalted
  • 1/4 teaspoon Onion Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Lawry's Seasoned Salt
Servings:
Instructions
Sauce:
  1. Melt butter and whisk in onion powder and seasoned salt. Set aside and make sandwiches.
Sandwich:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Slice rolls in half horizontally so you have a top and bottom half, not tearing rolls apart. Place bottom half of rolls on a baking sheet. Spread the bottom layer of rolls with about half a jar of Unicoi Preserves Apple Cider Pepper Spread, then layer the shaved ham, add a layer of sliced cheese, then the shaved turkey and another layer of sliced cheese.
  2. Spread yellow mustard lightly on the cut side of the bun tops, then place it on top of the meat and cheese and bottom bun.
  3. Use a silicone brush and brush the sauce on the assembled sandwiches.
  4. Wrap with foil and bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes or until cheese is melted. Remove foil and bake for another 5 minutes to lightly brown the buns.
  5. Optional: Sprinkle with finely minced parsley and serve with apple slices.
  6. Make ahead directions: Assemble sandwiches but do not sauce them. Place sandwiches back in original Kings Hawaiian tray and bag, store in refrigerator or cooler until needed. When ready to serve, simply make the sauce then brush sandwiches with it and follow above baking directions. Sandwiches may need to bake a little longer with the foil on depending on how cold they are.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups unbleached flour
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 tablespoon Baking powder
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 2 4 oz. jar Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread
  • 1/2 cup Chopped salted peanuts
Servings: muffins
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Grease your muffin tin or to ensure success, line the muffin tin with paper muffin cups.
  2. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, salt and baking powder. Stir the sugar, peanut butter and oil into the dry mixture until it looks like a sandy dough. Add the milk and eggs and mix until moistened using an electric mixer. Be careful not to overbeat, adding too much air will give your muffins tunnels and peaks. You don't want tunnels and peaks.

  3. Using an ice cream scoop, fill the muffin liners half full with the batter. Spoon 2 teaspoons of Unicoi Preserves Strawberry Vanilla Spread into the middle of each muffin. Finish each muffin by dividing the batter over each one, making sure to cover the Strawberry Vanilla Spread.
