  • If you have a griddle, you can easily make these for a group of people:
    Bread of choice (we use Milton's Multigrain)
    Havarti cheese, sliced
    Black Forest ham, sliced
    Peppered Turkey (or pan roasted), sliced
    red onion, sliced very thinly
    A second cheese of your choice: American, cheddar, provolone, Swiss, etc
    tomatoes, sliced

    Butter the bread, putting it butter to butter until ready to use. On your griddle, heated to 350*f, begin caramelizing the onions with a little butter. When they're just turning golden on the edges, push them to one side to finish and begin the meats. Place turkey and ham separately on the griddle for about 1 min, then flip. Cont...

  • On the hot side, add a different cheese to each one. (i.e. Havarti on the ham, Swiss on the turkey, or whatever you prefer). When the cheese is beginning to melt, put 1/2 of the bread slices, butter side down, and flip the meat/cheese combo onto the bread. Add onions, then the other meat/cheese combo. Place the other piece of bread, butter side up, on top, then flip the whole sandwich. When the bread is toasted and yummy on both sides, remove to a plate and add the tomatoes, and cut in half. Serve with baby pickles.

  • You can also make an antipasto sandwich, but it's better if you start it the day before. You'll need a baguette, olive tapenade, roasted red peppers (in a jar), marinated artichokes (jarred also), cream cheese (the spreadable kind with onion & chive), and the meats of your choosing. I usually add turkey, genoa salami, sopresatta, etc. Cut the baguette lengthwise about 1/3 of the way down. Remove the top 1/3 and dig out the inner soft part fo the bread on both pieces, leaving about 1 inch all around. Smear the cream cheese across the top piece, then the tapenade. Begin layering meat, cheese and vegetables in the bottom, then press the top onto it. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and chill at least 4 hours, better overnight.

  • a really easy way to spice up your subs is to take chunky salsa- drain it- mix with mayo- use it in place of your regular mayo or mustard. be generous with the spread on your bread- add all your meats and cheese. then wrap te bread tightly in cling wrap and let it sit in thr refrudgerator for a few hours.. squish- unwrap- cut- serve. enjoy!
