One look at this impressive sandwich and your family and friends will know their taste buds are in for a treat. I have served it many times for casual lunches and suppers. The tall layers prompt people to ask how they're supposed to eat it. I encourage them to simply dig in and enjoy! -Margaret Yost, Tipp City, Ohio

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 30, 2014

I've made this many times over the years. Can make it the day ahead, just don't bake it until you want to serve it. I love the salty sesame seed butter mixture on the crust. I usually use horsey sauce instead of straight up horseradish to give it a milder taste. Great to dip in au jus too.

I first made this recipe in 1996 when it appeared in the magazine and my family loved it. I just made it again last week and the entire thing was gone in one evening...and there were just three of us. It's perfect for a picnic or football Sunday.
