Easy Huge Sandwich

Visit your local bakery or grocery store and ask them to make you a huge long bread. Or you can make one yourself if you are very ambitious.

Use the large bread as your base to build a huge sandwich.

Some ideas: Place mustard greens around a large platter. Then place the bottom of your bread on top. Put your meat, cheese, and red leaf or other nice lettuce on the sandwich. You can even section the sandwich and place different meats and cheeses on each section so there is some choice. For instance, you can use roast beef and cheddar, turkey and havarti, ham and provolone, and club and muenster.

Serve the dressings separately. Place sliced tomatoes, cucumbers, pickles, olives, green peppers, and any other toppings you wish around the outside of the sandwich. It adds a lot of color and your guests get to build a sandwich of their choice.

Gives you a great looking and very impressive meal without a lot of work.
