Ingredients
  • 8 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 2 T. Half and Half

Instructions
  1. Put a block of cream cheese in the bowl of a stand mixer. No stand mixer, no problem, just use your hand mixer and a good size bowl. Start the mixer out on slow speed and gradually increase the speed as the block of cheese softens and starts to whip. Scrap down the sides of the bowl. Turn mixer off. Add 2 T. half and half, mix on low speed and increase speed to whip the cream cheese into soft, spreadable happiness.
  2. Warning! Do NOT add the half and half until the cream cheese has started to whip and break down or you will be cleaning your kitchen cabinets.
  3. Enjoy your whipped cream cheese spread on crackers or artisan bread with Unicoi Preserves.

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
  • 1/2 lb. Boars Head Black Forest Turkey Breast, shaved
  • Yellow Mustard
  • Optional: Minced parsley and apple slices
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.
