I SO wanted to love this - maybe our expectations were too high after reading all the rave reviews. I made homemade bread, used Recipe #234392 instead of the bottled salad dressing and had a gorgeous fresh out of the garden tomato. I made the salad dressing 4 hours prior to making the sandwich - maybe that wasn't enough time to allow the flavors to meld. Or perhaps my cold cuts were lacking. I'm not sure but was disappointed in the results. I REALLY like the ingredients so I'm not giving up. Next time I'll try adding a layer of avacado and bacon. Now THAT sounds like a winner! Thanks for posting.

Wow this got rave reviews from my DH! The only thing that would have made this sandwich any better is bacon and maybe some sliced avocado which I think I'll add next time. I am lactose intolerant so on my corner of the sandwich I did not include any cheese or any of the bacon ranch dressing I used on my husband's part. It was still totally delicious and it blew my husband's mind that a sandwich could fill him up so much. As the name suggests, it would make a great tailgating or super bowl party sandwich. I am definitely going to make it this weekend when the Longhorns beat Oklahoma State!!! Hook 'em!

A bit messy to eat, but quite tasty. :) I used a loaf of homemade sourdough that was a little smaller, so I scaled the ingredients down a tad, but stuffed all I could fit into the shell. Rather than cutting the loaf in half, filling both halves, then trying to turn the filled top half over without making a mess, I just cut the top of the loaf off and stuffed the bottom, then replaced the top. I layered the ingredients in the order directed, then layered them again in reverse so they would be ordered the same they would be if I had filled the two halves (if that makes sense :) ). I used red leaf lettuce and just added crumbled bacon to ranch-style dressing. Great sandwich--thanks for posting!
