Marinated Pork Tenderloin Sandwiches

Every January, we host a family get-together to watch "the big game" on TV. I'm not much of a football fan, but I do enjoy that annual opportunity to try out new recipes. These tasty finger sandwiches scored a "touchdown" with everyone who tried them! If you don't want to miss a play, you can prepare this appetizer ahead and heat it up at halftime.

    These little sliders are always a great hit. My husband & I recently celebrated our 50th birthdays. I served these at the party & they were gone almost before I put the platter down! - Sarah Vasques

    The only thing I added was a bowl of the sauce so you can dip the roll in it. Then just be sure to have extra napkins around. This could be called "Philly" style, or various other cities depending on where you were raised!

    The diabetic exchange is wrong on this recipe. No fruit in it. Does not address meat and carbs, etc.

    These are simple but delicious! My family can't get enough of them! I just serve them up with picnic-style sides to make a full meal.
