After a long hard day at band camp, my daughter comes home with a huge appetite. This sandwich not only satisfies my hungry marcher; it is also fast and easy to prepare. -Char Shanahan Schererville, Indiana

  • 1 large green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) unsliced Italian bread
  • 1/3 cup prepared Italian salad dressing, divided
  • 2 ounces sliced deli turkey
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 2 ounces sliced deli ham
  • 3 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 ounces sliced deli pastrami
  • 1/2 cup sliced dill pickles
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • Additional olive oil


  1. In a large bowl, toss green pepper and onion with oil. Place on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Fold foil around vegetables and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 12-15 minutes or until tender; set aside.
  2. Cut loaf in half horizontally; remove bread from top half, leaving a 1/2-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use). Brush cut sides of loaf with salad dressing; place cut side down on grill. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown.
  3. Place bottom of loaf on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. x 12 in.). Layer with turkey, two Swiss cheese slices, ham, cheddar cheese, pastrami and remaining Swiss cheese. Top with green pepper mixture, pickles and tomato.
  4. Drizzle remaining dressing over cut side of bread top; place over filling. Brush bread with additional oil. Fold foil around sandwich and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 4-8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into slices with a serrated knife. Yield: 4 servings.

"Yum!!!!! Next time I will spritz the foil with some cooking spray or oil before I build the sandwich on it because mine was a little stuck to the foil!!! Not very difficult and super delicious!!!"

"Quite a few steps for a sandwich but worth it. Used pepper jack instead of swiss and salami instead of pastrami."
