    These fun sandwiches are great to make ahead and keep in the freezer for a fast meal, or to make hors d'oeuvres for an impromptu get together.

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
    2. 2
      Cut off the ends of the bread, and carefully hollow out the center portion.
    3. 3
      In a food processor, make soft crumbs out of the bread that was removed from the middle of the loaf.
    4. 4
      Brown the sausage and ground meat in a skillet over medium heat.
    5. 5
      Add onion, and continue to cook until soft.
    6. 6
      In a bowl, combine the cooked meat and onion, the bread crumbs, grated cheese, the egg, mustard, parsley, fennel, basil, salt and pepper and pepper to taste.
    7. 7
      With a long handled wooden spoon, stuff the hollowed out French bread with the stuffing mixture.
    8. 8
      Place the ends of the bread back in place and secure with small skewers.
    9. 9
      Melt the butter and stir in the garlic, let cook over low heat for about 1 minute.
    10. 10
      Brush the loaf with the butter/garlic mixture and wrap in a piece of aluminium foil, leaving it open at the top, slightly so the top browns.
    11. 11
      Bake until heated through, 15 to 20 minutes.
    12. 12
      Cut into 1 inch slices for hors d'oeuvres, or into 4 larger pieces for main course servings.

      I did the same thing as Kim127 (I actually made more meat, so I had to use 6 small loaves)... I froze all of them for my husband to just pull out of the freezer when ever he gets hungry. I put them in the microwave just enough to defrost, then put it in the toaster oven at 350F until golden brown. Way better than "Hot Pockets"! Thanks :)

      What a great sandwich idea!! Very tasty! I left out the fennel (I thought I had some but didn't) and I used 4 french sandwich rolls instead of a loaf. They came out great! They were also easier to make than I anticipated. I will make this one again for sure! Thanks Geema!
