1 jar chopped dried beef, or salami
1 package Italian salad dressing mix
1/2 jar pimento, drained and chopped
Small amount of roasted red peppers chopped
2 teaspoons dried parsley/dill
Handful of chopped olives green or black
1 cup mayonnaise
2   8-ounce packages cream cheese, room temperature
French bread, or any tough crusty bread


In a bowl combine all of the ingredients except the bread. Mix together.  Slice the bread and scoop out enough bread from the inside to fill with the mixture. Fill both sides and close.  Wrap the sandwich in tin foil or plastic wrap completely.  Put in the refrigerator to allow it to harden, about an hour. When ready to serve slice into sections.

There are tons of substitutions you could use for this basic idea.

This is a great sandwich for a picnic or outside occasion.  I make a large one, throw it in a picnic basket and serve at least 4 people with it.
