Recipe by SilentCricket

Looking for something to eat during the "big game?!" Here's an idea...and it doesn't have to be just for kids! Feel free to let your imagination go to vary the filling! Prep time includes chilling or freezing time...You probably would want to make these the day before serving. (also makes 1 loaf French bread)

This was the hit of my daughter's slumber party last week. The kids had a terrific time putting it all together at the beginning of the evening, and we baked the sandwiches after only 1 hour of fridge time. We don't mix meat and cheese for religious reasons, so we just used more meat and lots of pizza sauce. The olives were a great touch.
