Football Sandwiches

A staple of Junior League cookbooks, these miniature ham sandwiches are doused in a tangy butter-poppyseed sauce and then baked in the oven.Helen Rosner

A hearty thank you to all our readers who submitted recipes to our Home Cook Challenge: Tailgating contest. We're pleased to announce the winning recipe, submitted by Nealey Dozier of the blog Dixie Caviar, who will be receiving a $500 gift card to Sur La Table. Nealey's recipe is a tailgate-perfect dish of miniature ham sandwiches baked in a tangy, poppyseed-sprinkled butter sauce; a Junior League staple, Nealey's version comes by way of her boyfriend's mother, who makes hundreds of them each football season. See the recipe for Football Sandwiches, and check out this month's Home Cook Challenge to see if you have a recipe that could be a winner.
