Special Sandwich Loaves Recipe

These satisfying sub sandwiches from our Test Kitchen staff are a study in simplicity. Offering the seasoned mayonnaise and submarine sandwich dressing on the side makes it easy for guests to personalize their helpings and serve themselves. Look for bottles of submarine salad dressing in the deli section of many grocery stores...or use bottled Italian dressing as an easy alternative.
