A make-ahead sandwich makes the ideal, no-fuss entrée for informal parties, potlucks and family gatherings.
2 (1-pound) unsliced loaves Italian bread
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
3/4 cup sliced green onion
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 pound thinly sliced fully cooked ham
1 pound thinly slice cooked roast beef
12 thin slices dill pickle
6 pepperoncini, seeded and chopped
- Cut the bread in half lengthwise. Hollow out top and bottom of loaves, leaving a 1/2-inch shell (discard removed bread or save for another use).
- Combine cheeses, onions, mayonnaise and Worcestershire sauce; spread over cut sides of bread. Layer ham and roast beef on bottom and top halves; place pickles on bottom halves and sprinkle with chopped pepperoncini. Gently press halves together. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- To serve, cut into 1 1/2-inch slices.
