"I frequently fix this speedy sandwich on days we return from our cabin and it's suppertime when we get home," writes Jean Gruenert, Burlington, Wisconsin. The stuffed loaf takes advantage of refrigerated dough, so it's easy to assemble for a meal, appetizer or late-night snack.

"I couldn't find the french bread so I used a tube of pizza crust. We found this to be quick, easy and delicious. I would recommend patting the roasted red peppers dry or REALLY draining them well. Feel free to use a mix of ham and salami. Taking time to brush the crust with melted butter made it very pretty."

"Delicious. The french bread unrolled ok for me, used the Pillsbury one. I left out the pimientos as well and spread some pesto over the top."

"Made just like the recipe - and it was excellent. There are soooo many things you could do to make this recipe your own, or just whatever you are in the mood for. Its a keeper!"

"My mother and I have made a recipe almost identical to this for years minus the pimientos (or olives, as some have substituted). Don't think we'd care for that part anyway! But yes, I had the same problem over and over with the French bread not wanting to unroll right. So I started using crescent roll dough instead--pinching the seams. Now you can buy the seamless roll of crescent roll dough which also works very well. However, I often double it because it is rather thin and I sometimes have trouble with the fillings poking through! But it is very yummy with crescent dough and any kinds of fillings!"

"My kids loved this! It is a very versatile recipe. Next time I might try adding garlic powder and even pizza sauce. Thanks for the recipe!"

"Fast easy and delicious. My only problem was trying to roll out the refrigerated french bread. Either I got the wrong kind or there is an unknown trick. Mine wouldn't roll out hardly at all and was maybe 3" x 12" I made it work though and loved it."

"This was very good and simple to make. The only problem I had was that the French loaf dough was simply not enough to spread out. After growing frustrated with that, I substituted refrigerated pizza dough instead. That worked splendidly! The next time I make it, I think I will sprinkle the top with garlic salt as well. It was very good and simple. I will definitely make it again!"
