Savory Sandwich Ring

I first made this alternative to a submarine sandwich for a party. It looks appetizing and tastes great! Now it's a mainstay on my menu plan for gatherings or when my family is tired of ordinary meat-and-cheese sandwiches.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 20 min. Bake: 25 min. + cooling
  • Makes
    8-10 servings


  • 2 tubes (11 ounces each) crusty French bread dough
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, pressed
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1/3 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1/2 pound thinly sliced deli ham
  • 1/4 pound sliced process American or Swiss cheese, halved
  • 1/4 to 1/2 pound thinly sliced deli roast beef or turkey
  • 2 cups shredded lettuce
  • 1 medium red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 medium tomato, thinly sliced


  • Place both loaves of dough seam side down on a greased 14-in. pizza pan, forming one large ring; pinch ends to seal. With a sharp knife, make eight 1/2-in.-deep slashes across the top of dough; lightly brush with oil.
  • Spread garlic over oil; sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • To assemble, cut bread in half horizontally. Brush salad dressing over cut sides. Layer the bottom half with ham, cheese, beef, lettuce, onion, green pepper and tomato; replace top. Serve immediately. Refrigerate leftovers.

    What a fun Sandwich to make for parties The only negative thing I have to say is that the refrigerated dough is expensive, so I am going to start looking for sales/coupons to help offset the cost. This is such a fun recipe to play with different meats and cheeses.

    Our Sunday School class was asked to provide sandwiches for the Vacation Bible School workers and I prepared this sandwich. It was so easy to prepare. I debated whether to leave the onion off but went ahead and left it on and figured if someone didn't like it they could take it off. I got nothing but compliments on this sandwich ring and even a few recipe requests. I wouldn't hesitate to fix this again. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home.
