St. Louis' Amighetti Sandwich (Copycat)

Total Time

Amighetti's is a well known Italian restaurant in St. Louis, where I grew up. They have a great deli sandwich that I still crave to this day (even out here in CA). It has a really delicious spread that makes it different from other sandwiches. The true key is their famous bread, but in a pinch, you can make this sandwich at home with your own bread.

The sauce makes this sandwich. I upped the horseradish and dill both to 2 tbs. Great sandwich!

Sorry I haven't reviewed this sooner! I've made this recipe a number of times to great success. I usually have a little of the 'Amighetti Spread' leftover for later too, and it's even wonderful with a Loaded Salad Sandwich! I found this recipe because I lived in St. Louis for a number of years and miss that city greatly. This is a wonderful sandwich, don't need to change a thing!

Fabulous sandwich! I intended to get regular french bread for it, but decided at the last minute to get an artisan bread (garlic, gruyere, and olive) at our local grocery store. The flavors were phenomenal. My family doesn't normally rave about a sandwich, but they did about this one. This sandwich tastes very "gourmet" and is far above average. Perfect for a romantic picnic lunch!
