- 1 round loaf (1-1/2 pounds) rye bread
- 1 cup mayonnaise
- 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1 jar (2 ounces) diced pimientos, drained
- 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
- 1/2 pound sliced provolone cheese
- 1/4 pound sliced fully cooked ham
- 1/4 pound sliced cooked turkey
- 1/4 pound sliced Genoa salami
- 1/4 pound sliced mozzarella cheese
- Cut bread in half horizontally; hollow out top and bottom, leaving a 3/4-in. shell. (Discard removed bread or save for another use.)
- In a small bowl, combine mayonnaise, mustard, pimientos and hot pepper sauce; spread 1/4 cup in the bottom bread shell. Layer with a fourth of the provolone, ham, turkey, salami and mozzarella. Spread with more of the mayonnaise mixture. Repeat layers three times (you may not use up all of the mayonnaise mixture). Replace bread top and wrap tightly with plastic wrap.
- Chill for at least 3 hours. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving. Cut into wedges; serve with remaining mayonnaise mixture if desired. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Reviews for Spicy Summer Sub
"What a great idea! Yes, it is a sandwich as one rater remarked, but WHAT A SANDWICH! Since the boiling hot weather we are having (yes, I am a Missourian, too) I can foresee us having this awesome treat numerous times. Thanks for posting!"
"I'm English and I've moved here and married an American man - I haven't even been here a year yet but I'm loving seeing things like this that I'd never have dreamed up in a million years. I'm an experienced cook but not every meal has to be haute cuisine and this looks like fabulous fun for a picnic too.. in fact I want to organise a nice day out right now just so I can take goodies like this to eat! The real beauty of it is you can make it as versatile as you want and that sauce sounds totally scrumptious :)"
"While I might have been able to come up with this idea on my own I always like to see another cook's presentation and the sauce Barb added is hers alone so if I hadn't viewed the recipe I would have missed out on that. So to jasmar and Ohio46: Lighten up a little! For your information TOH has a whole section on sandwiches. To Barb: Thanks for an interesting recipe!"
"I agree with the reviews that said simple or not this is a good idea.I was browsing for a quick meal and this is it..never thought of serving a sandwich.I think of this and other recipe sites as not only to make never done before creations but for me, a resource of ideas for whatever i am in the mood for.The last thing i needed today was a lot of work.I most sefinitely will use this as my starting point today,While i am an experienced cook,,many are not and everyone needs ideas for meals."
