This easy bread recipe is SO perfect for party sandwiches. The key ingredient? None other than two cans of Pillsbury French Bread pinched together, placed in a non-stick spray fluted bundt plan.

To make it extra special, you can roll the dough in sesame seeds or everything bagel seasoning first.

WHAT IS A BUNDTWICH?

A bundtwich is a kind of sandwich created by Pillsbury with their refrigerated French bread. The easy idea is to place two rolls of their dough in half circles in a fluted bundt pan and bake it. Then slice the loaf in half for an amazing sandwich bread that everyone will love. Fill with your favorite toppings for an epic BIG sandwich that makes for the best party sandwiches ideas for adults and kids alike.

The original recipes show the bottom half of the loaf "scooped out" to create a "cradle" for the sandwich toppings, but I chose to leave mine as-is.

HOT SANDWICH RECIPES FOR A CROWD

After the bread is baked and the toppings are placed into the sandwich, it's time to transform it into a warm melty lunch.

These tasty ham and cheese sliders promise to be a hit! The one I made was literally gone in minutes! Literally. Smelling this as I was preparing it was pure torture the whole time. I say make two.

One for your party and one for you to sample as you bake and prepare it. 😉

Brushing butter mixed with Italian Seasonings onto the top of the bundt bread is a step you don't want to miss.

Then, wrap the entire sandwich in foil and bake until the cheese is nice and melted.

I love this idea. One question: I'm not sure I'm following this direction, "Roll each over sesame seeds to cover, making sure not to get any on the sides. " Making sure not to get any on the sides.....? Does this mean the "sides" where the two ends of the rolls will be joined?
