Layered Deli Loaf Recipe
This recipe is special to me because it was handed down from my grandma. A tangy sauce, flavored with horseradish and Dijon mustard, sparks a hearty assortment of meats and cheeses. It feeds a crowd, so it's perfect for a party or a potluck. My husband says it's the best sub sandwich he's ever had. -Sarah Kraemer, Rockford, Illinois
