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

"I have made this for parties many times over the last 11 years. Everyone enjoys! I don't think the original recipe had pickles in it though; I will continue to make without."

"When summer weather rolls around, my family's taste buds anticipate "The Big Round sandwich." It's a great lunch for guests, too, as it looks amazing!"
