Wow! This was the bomb! Made one for supper, and the rest for dh lunch tomorrow. I added leaf lettuce also, the only other thing I might add would be dill slices. This is an outstanding recipe!
I made this sandwich for a picnic at the Hollywood Bowl when kids and grandkids were in town. Used an artisan french bread that did not need to be hollowed out and made different versions for kids and adults. Also used plenty of various nitrate free meats (roasted turkey breast, Black Forest ham, roast beef, turkey pastrami and pepperoni), so probably used more meat than the recipe amounts. The kids especially enjoyed watching Grandma sitting on their dinner and we all thought the sandwiches were first rate!
My husband says this is the best sandwich he has ever had, homemade or from a restaurant. The mayo/artichoke sauce is amazing. I think the sandwich works best with a very crusty loaf, as otherwise the chill time can result in it being a bit soggy (still delicious, just difficult to eat).
This was awesome and my daughter especially liked sitting on the sandwich. Made the meal fun!!
YUMMY! I used 3-4 tbsp of the artichoke liquid with the 1/2 cup of mayo and it was perfect. I also added genoa salami, Italian dry salami, maple honey turkey breast and meunster cheese. Everyone looved it. Only problem was there were no leftovers!!! Next time I'll add sopresatta and maybe try the havarti cheese. The possibilities are endless!!!! Thanks Julesong!
My family LOVED this sandwich -- we opted to squish it by placing it between two cutting boards and having my 88-year-old mom step on it. It was delicious! It even tasted good a day later. I was afraid to put the whole amount of liquid in the mayo so put about half instead. Still a wonderful combination of flavors. Thanks for posting such a fun and tasty recipe!!
This was so yummy! I used all turkey and Swiss and cheddar cheeses. I halved the recipe. Very easy and good! It was a little messy but we ate it outside so that was fine. Thanks!!!
Thank you for a fantastic picnic meal. I have made this several times & love that it can be made ahead! The flavour is outstanding! Next time, i'm adding a sprinkling of feta as well....LOVE IT!!!
Well Julesong, don't know what I enjoyed the most, the prep instructions or eating the sandwich. I made this for a picnic DH and I had planned and I loved looking at his face when I told him he had to "sit on it"!! I used home made sour dough french bread and made some minor changes for personal preferance. Added some creamy wasabi to the mayonnaise, and followed your suggestion adding red pepper, fresh basil and slices of avocado. Very nice recipe with clear (and fun) directions. Thanks so much for posting, will be using this again.
