Today is the first day of Greenbay Packer football. My husband is a huge fan. So, needless to say, he really looked forward to today’s game. Special events should be accompanied by special food like this yummy sandwich. It is perfectly quick so you too can watch the game.

Spicy Italian Sandwich 

  • 1 petite boule
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced pepperoni
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced dry salami
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced ham
  • 6 provolone or mozzarella cheese slices
  • Olive tapenade
  • 1/8 cup mayo
  • 2 tbsp whole grain mustard

Split the bread in half using a serrated knife. Remove some of the center breading so that the bread half looks like a very shallow bowl. This makes room for the tapenade. Spread the bottom half of the bread with the mayo and the whole grain mustard.

In non-stick skillet, warm the meat in individual slices to help release a little extra flavor. Layer half of the pepperoni, then half the salami, half of the ham, and half of the cheese. Repeat the last step. On the top bread half, thickly spread the olive tapenade. Place the bread halved together and wrap the whole sandwich in foil.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Place the bread into the oven and bake 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and slice into 4 servings. Enjoy with a good beer!
