Soup Can Sandwiches

Sammies in the shape of soup cans. Squee for stuffed sandwiches! Inspired by favfamilyrecipes .

Ingredients

2
cans (11 oz each) Pillsbury™ refrigerated crusty French loaf
1
avocado, mashed
Salt and pepper, to taste
4
slices Colby Jack cheese
4
slices roasted turkey
4
pieces green leaf lettuce
1/2
red bell pepper, sliced

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Generously spray the inside of 4 empty 18 oz. Progresso™ soup cans (wrappers removed) with cooking spray and place on a baking sheet.
  • 2 Cut each loaf of refrigerated French bread in half (so you have 4 pieces total). Place one half upright inside each soup can.
  • 3 Bake 20 to 25 minutes until bread is baked through and dark golden brown on top. Remove bread from cans; if it seems doughy, return to baking sheet (out of cans) and bake another 5 minutes.
  • 4 Cool bread completely on a cooling rack.
  • 5 Slice the domed top off each piece of bread. Use your fingers to remove the middle of the bread. Use your fingers to push the bread to the edges so you end up with a hollow cavity (use extra bread to dip in the soup from the soup cans).
  • 6 Mix avocado and salt and pepper; spread along the inside bottom and sides of each bread cavity. Fill with cheese, turkey, lettuce and red bell pepper slices. Serve!

Step By Step  

Soup Can Sandwiches

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

Remember that one time I made sandwiches using soup cans and it was awesome?


Of course you don’t, because until now, I’d never done it.

But now that I have indeed made Soup Can Sandwiches (inspired by Favorite Family Recipes), I am tempted to never make sandwiches another way again. And once you see how easy they are to make, you may not either!

Aren’t they just the cutest and most eater-friendly way to make sammies? I think they’re great for parties, picnics, sack lunches or because I just want a cute sandwich. All you need are some empty soup cans (these large Progresso soup cans work fabulously), refrigerated bread dough and sandwich fixins and you’re ready to roll!

 

Soup cans on baking sheet

Place four soup cans on a baking sheet. Make sure to remove the wrappers (paper burns, after all) and generously grease the insides with cooking spray.

 

Putting dough in cans

Cut each loaf of Pillsbury’s Simply refrigerated French bread dough in half. Place one half in each soup can.

 

Baked bread, ready for sandwiches

Bake the bread until it’s baked through and deep golden brown on top, about 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the bread from the cans immediately – if it still seems underbaked or doughy in the center, return the bread to the baking sheets (out of the cans) and bake another 5 minutes or so until set.

 

Slicing off the tops and hollowing out the insides

Once the bread is cooled, slice off the tops and hollow out the insides. Use that extra bread to dip into the soup from the Progresso soup cans, yo! That’s called multitasking.

 

Sandwich fixings

Get your sammie fixins ready. I’ve got mashed avocado, cheese, turkey, lettuce and red bell pepper slices for mine, but feel free to get creative and add whatever you love to eat.

 

Soup Can Sandwiches, ready to eat

Fill the bread cavities with the ingredients, and there you go – soup can sandwiches. Done and done. I mean, can a sandwich look any cuter? I THINK NOT.
