Reviews forSandwich for a Crowd
"I've made this recipe for two different groups and was a huge hit both times. I made the sandwiches the night before, which is a great time saver, and sliced when ready to serve. We really enjoy this wonderful sandwich!"
"I have been making this sandwitch for years and years. I have even passed it along to family and everyone loves it. I have two children and both can be picky eaters and they both love it. Great to make ahead for late night baseball games and football games the kids have. I would recommend leaving the pickles off until ready to eat. It can make the bread a little soggy. My husband got excited when I mentioned making this tomorrow night for dinner."
"This sandwich is a favorite of my family, and I have been making since I came across this recipe in a Taste of Home magazine years ago. Left-overs keep very well and it actually tastes even better on day 2 and 3!"
"Was looking through a cookbook and found the cutout of this. Made this - or one exactly this- for Shelby's graduation in 1998!!"
"Best sandwich ever for parties."
"I have not tried it.... I have No diary husband, what would you suggest I use instead of the Cream Cheese??"
"This really is a good sandwich. The flavors together are very tasty."
"This sandwich has been a favorite of our family since the June-July 1998 issue of TOH came out. We have 6 children, now ages 27-15, & every one of them chose this for their birthday meal for many years in a row. This year, it was chosen for our Christmas Eve meal! The only change I make to the recipe is to use french instead of Italian bread. So very good!"
