I trimmed long French bread to make these hearty hoagies look like baseball bats—only they’re stuffed with cold cuts, veggies and cheese.
8 ServingsPrep/Total Time: 15 min.


  • 1 French bread baguette (1 pound and 20 inches long)
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced fully cooked ham
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced bologna
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced hard salami
  • 4 romaine leaves
  • 6 slices Swiss cheese
  • 6 slices Colby cheese
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced


  • With a sharp knife, cut one end of the baguette in the shape of a
  • baseball bat handle. Slice loaf in half lengthwise.
  • On the bottom half, layer with ham, bologna, salami, romaine, cheeses
  • and tomato. Replace top. Secure with toothpicks if necessary. Cut
  • into slices. Yield: 8 servings.
