"The first time I took this beautiful sandwich 'centerpiece' to a church potluck, it disappeared so fast, I was sorry I hadn't brought two," says Margaret Rhodes of Coaldale, Alberta. "I have often added sliced tomatoes to it."

  • 1 loaf unsliced French bread (1 pound, 20 inches long)
  • 3 to 4 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, softened

  • 5 thin slices fully cooked ham, halved
  • 5 slices pimiento loaf, halved, optional
  • 10 slices salami
  • 10 slices Swiss cheese, halved
  • 5 slices mozzarella cheese, halved
  • 10 thinly sliced sweet red or green pepper rings

"This was a big hit with company. It's an easy dish to do ahead of time. We substituted other deli meats for the pimento loaf and made half of the sandwich without mayonnaise. Makes a great addition to a potluck or luncheon buffet!"
