Survival Sandwich Loaf


by Kara Kimbrough

2 loaves Italian bread

8-ounce package cream cheese (use low fat if you desire)

1 cup shredded cheese (your favorite)

3/4 cup green onions, finely diced

1/2 green olive, finely diced

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce (more to taste)

1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt

1 pound sliced deli ham

1 pound sliced roast beef

1/2 cup sliced dill pickles or sweet pickle relish


Cut loaves in half lengthwise; hollow out some, not all, of bread on both halves, set aside. Combine cheeses, green onion, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce and seasoning salt well; spread over both halves. Layer ham, roast beef and pickles or relish on bottom half of bread; press on top half of bread. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate several hours; preferably overnight. Cut into large slices and serve. Can add sliced tomatoes, lettuce and other condiments if desired.
