I think the name says it all. This is one GIANT finger sandwich. Literally, a FINGER sandwich. This dish is a party favorite. It’s gone in no time. The outside is buttery and flaky and the inside is filled with meat and melted cheese. What’s not to love? It’s kind of like a giant homemade hot pocket! Halloween recipe #5: Giant Bloody Finger Sandwich.
- 10 oz thin deli sliced ham
- 10 oz thin deli sliced turkey
- 10 oz thin deli sliced pastrami
- 2 cups shredded cheese (I used Mexican blend)
- 4 tbsp Dijon mustard
- 1 can crescent rolls
- flour for dusting
- 1 egg yolk, beaten
Step 1: Preheat oven to 375. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or foil.
Step 2: Lightly dust a flat surface with flour. Remove the crescent dough from the can and roll out into a rectangle. Pinch the seams rightly shut.
Step 3: Spread the Dijon mustard over the crescent dough, leaving a 1 inch border.
Step 4: Divide the ham, turkey, pastrami, and cheese into three piles. You’re going to make 3 layers. Lay down a layer of ham, again leaving a 1 inch border, followed by a layer of turkey and pastrami. Top the meats with a layer of shredded cheese. Repeat for the remaining 2 layers.
Step 5: Starting with one of the long edges, gently pull the dough over the meat and cheese. Repeat with the other long edge. Where the edges overlap, use a pastry brush to brush some of the egg yolk onto the bottom layer and press together the edges together. The yolk acts as glue. Brush the short ends of the dough with yolk and fold over sandwich, sealing the ends.
Step 6: Gently pick up the sandwich and move to the lined cookie sheet. Turn the sandwich over so the seams are on the bottom. Using the flat side of a dinner knife, gently indent lines into the dough for the knuckles and fingernail. Using a pastry brush, brush the ketchup along the bottom end of the sandwich to represent a severed finger, along the knuckle lines, and along the fingernail bed.
Step 7: Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and cooked throughout.
