Recipe by Mille®
This is best made with Irish soda bread, and there are several good soda bread recipes here at Recipezaar. Or, though less authentic, you can substitute a good hoagie roll.

Oh my God, Miller! These were INCREDIBLE! My husband and I love to have a great sandwich, and these were amazing! My husband went so far as to say these were the best he's ever had! I didn't have time to make your ham( I will try it for the holidays, and enjoy the leftovers on these sandwiches!)but we had a good quality deli ham, havarti, and good pepperoni. And we had them on my fresh homemade focaccia. We also added a few slices of red onion. The vinaigrette is delicious, and we sprinkled some on the bottom bread also before layering ingredients. The combination of flavors are just a match made in heaven! Definitely a keeper that will be in regular rotation in my cookbook! I'm thinking I could make this with the whole focaccia, wrap it up, then slice and serve at a picnic! Yummm! Thanks for sharing!
