Make Ahead Chili Cheese Freezer Sandwiches

I love the concept of freezer sandwiches.  Stuff a roll with yumminess, wrap in foil, freeze and then pop it straight into the oven from the freezer when you want to eat one. 

There are all sorts of things you could stuff one of these rolls with, but this recipe is one of my family favorites. 

These sandwiches are great to pull out of the freezer on a day you don't have time to cook, or when you need something portable. 

The Ingredients
2 package dinner rolls or small french rolls (or one bag of Costco rolls)
1 lb Monterey Jack cheese
2 (7oz) cans of diced green chilie peppers
1 small can chopped olives
Tin foil strips to wrap each sandwich in

At Ten O'Clovk
Split each roll and scoop out the insides.  I find that it's easiest to do this with your fingers.  Set aside.

In large mixing bowl, shred the Monterery Jack cheese.  Add the cans of chilie peppers and olives.  Stir to combine.

Fill the center of each roll with a heaping scoop of the cheese mixture.  Wrap each assembled roll in tin foil. 

If not using immidiately, put in the freezer. 

Before Serving
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  If frozen, bake 30 minutes.  If not frozen, bake 20 minutes.

Family Approval
Delish!  These are so simple, yet so good.  My kids and husband could probably eat this everyday.  I too them to an impromptu family gathering once and every single adult and child loved them.  You seriously have to try these!
