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.
- 2 slices irish soda bread
- 3 ounces thinly sliced baked limerick ham (recipe ID # 20102)
- 1 ounce thinly sliced pepperoni
- 1 1⁄2-2 ounces sliced Irish farmhouse cheese (havarti, which tastes vaguely similar, may be used)
- iceberg lettuce
- fresh tomato, sliced
Red Wine Dijon Vinaigrette
- 6 fluid ounces olive oil
- 4 fluid ounces red wine vinegar
- 4 fluid ounces fresh lemon juice
- 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
- 1⁄4 teaspoon cracked black pepper
- ---To Make The Vinaigrette---.
- Combine all vinaigrette ingredients in a small bowl and whisk together until thoroughly mixed.
- Shake before using.
- Refrigerated, the vinaigrette will last for about a week.
- ---To Make The Sandwich---.
- Toast the bread or bun under a broiler until light golden brown.
- On one slice of the bread, or one half of the hoagie roll, layer the Limerick ham, then the pepperoni, and then the cheese.
- Return to the broiler and broil until the cheese is melted.
- Remove from the broiler, sprinkle with vinaigrette to taste, and top with lettuce, tomato and the other bread slice or roll half.
- Serve hot.
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!
This was like having a "restaurant" sandwich at home. We did stray slightly by using focaccia, but stuck with the recipe otherwise. I will be adding this one to our favorite "baked" sandwich list! Thanks for the great recipe :)
Very tasty sandwich! I didn't make your limerick ham either- just used nice black forest ham. I also cheated on the bread too- I actually made Irish soda bread with the express intent of using it for these sandwiches, but we ate it all before I got to make these! We just had it on sourdough. The vinagarette is nice. I liked the flavors, but I felt like there should be more on the sandwich- red onion like Lee~Ann~R used, maybe? I also would have rather have not melted the cheese, I think- I did have to use havarti and I found that I prefer it not melted- I find that its creamy texture and flavor disappears when its melted. I think this is a good basic sandwich, but needs some suppliments and adjustments for personal tastes. Thanks for a nice lunch!
