    Units: US | Metric



    • 2 (3 ounce) hoagie rolls, cut in half lengthwise
    • 4 slices sandwich pickles (sandwich length)
    • 1/8 lb thinly sliced smoked turkey
    • 1/8 lb thinly sliced turkey ham
    • 4 slices swiss cheese (Jarlsberg is good)
    • cooking spray


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350°.
    2. 2
      To make butter:.
    3. 3
      Remove white papery skin from garlic head (do not peel or separate cloves); drizzle with oil. Wrap 1/2 head in foil. Bake at 350° for 1 hour; cool 10 minutes. Separate cloves; squeeze to extract garlic pulp. Discard skins. Combine garlic pulp, mustard, and butter in a small bowl; set aside.
    4. 4
      Double this and save the butter to make more sandwiches later!
    5. 5
      To make sandwiches:.
    6. 6
      Scoop out inside of the roll halves, leaving a 1/2" shell. Spread about 2 teaspoons garlic butter over cut sides of top and bottom halves of each roll. Arrange pickles, turkey, ham, and cheese evenly on bottom halves of rolls; top with top halves.
    7. 7
      Heat a nonstick grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add 2 sandwiches to pan. Place a heavy skillet on top of sandwiches, and press gently to flatten. Grill 4 minutes on each side or until cheese melts and bread is toasted. Cut the sandwiches in half diagonally, and serve immediately.

      This is absolutely delicious. I did not have time to roast the garlic; I doubled the sauce and used about 1/2t of garlic powder instead. I also used a loaf of italian bread instead of hoagies and cut it thick; then grilled the sandwiches on my panini press. I will definitely be making these again!

      Very good sandwich. I loved the roasted garlic in this spread. It gave the sandwich soooo much flavor. We loved it and will repeat the recipe often. Thank you so much for sharing this with us.
