Make Ahead Party Sandwich
A no-fuss, make ahead entree for an informal get-together.
2 (1-pound) unsliced loaves Italian bread
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup sliced green onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 pound thinly sliced fully cooked ham
1 pound thinly slice cooked roast beef
12 thin slices dill pickle
6 peperoncini, seeded and chopped
Cut the bread in half lengthwise. Hollow out top and bottom of loaves, leaving a 1/2-inch shell
(discard removed bread or save for another use).
Combine cheeses, onions, mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce; spread over cut sides of bread.
Layer ham and roast beef on bottom and top halves; place pickles on bottom halves and sprinkle
with chopped peperoncini. Gently press halves together. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
To serve, cut into 1 1/2-inch slices.
Makes 12 to 14 servings.
