"Another hi rating for this speard. Loaded the french bread down with turkey, ham and lettuce after very generously using the spread. This was for a large party we had for my sister. Everyone was very impressed. Had sone extra left over and used it on tortillas just as a snack. "
"Very interesting! The spread is essentially the makings of a cheese ball prior to chilling, but it makes a really great sandwich spread! We combined our sandwiches with generous helpings of turkey, lettuce, tomatoes, and spread and like another reviewer, we toasted the French bread and sliced out individual sandwiches. This was a really quick, yummy, and filling lunch-thanks so much!"
"Very good and easy to make. I halved the recipe for me and my husband. Wasn't over-powered by the cream cheese. This would be a good spread for almost any kind of sandwich."
"Very very good sandwich spread, better than some restaurants! I half the amount as there's only DH and me and it's MAJOR YUM! I was worried that it would be too 'cream cheesy' but boy was I wrong. All the ingredients melded together beautifully and gave such amazing taste. Thank you!"
"This is our go-to sandwich spread. I use this quite often to make french bread sandwiches for my family. As a matter of fact, they call it Big Sandwich when they ask for it. I use it as it is given in the recipe, although I only use it on one side of the bread. I use plain mayo on the other and I get more sandwiches out of one recipe. Thank you so much for sharing."
"I tried it and this is fantastic! Halfed the recipe - did a few tweaks as I used what I had on hand -- cream cheese; subbed feta for the cheddar and mayo -- omitted the wor sauce since I was gonna use it on turkey sandwiches and left out the onion powder as well. Also makes a great dip as I had it with tortilla chips too. Delish! Thanks for posting!!"
"For a change I didn't have to crank up the stove and the prep was downright easy. I used my free time to watch a California car chase on the news. ;-)"
"This is a very good recipe to take to a picnic. The spread is tasty,and didn't make the bread soggy. I made this as directed, and loved all of the flavors. The only negative thing, for my taste, was the amount of Worcestershire Sauce. It was pretty strong, IMHO. I will definately make this again. Thanks so much for sharing this recipe."
"This was so good! :) We used the roast beef and didnt have the onions so we did the onion powder. I was making dinner at the same time for my kids (ages 3 and 11 mos.) and forgot the worchestire sauce so I just put a little bit after I spreaded it. I couldnt use all the spread on my sandwich though. Either way my husband loved it as well and satisfied the pregnancy craving I was having. :) Ohhh, and we used banana peppers on our sandwich, no pickles. Husbands preference. Thanks so much for something quick and easy!!!!"
"YUM! Really rich, I only used 1/2 lb. roast beef for a whole loaf of french bread, next time I will use 1 lb since the amount of spread to meat was way too much. I will also try the sandwich toasted."
"Delicious. I used roast beef and I chose ciabatta as my bread and left off the pickle. :)"
"Original review on Sept. 24, 2004: Needed to take something to a luncheon and this worked out great! I'm sure it would be a big hit at a Super Bowl party or similar situation. I made two 'sandwiches'. One with roast beef and one with turkey. The roast beef one was the most popular. I didn't add pickles. I also used homemade whole wheat French bread. Thanks, Windchime, for sharing such an easy yet flavorful and filling finger food! Updated: I've made this several times now and it is always a HUGE hit. I even get rave reviews when I use low-fat cream cheese and mayo. Thanks again!"
"This was wonderful! DoryJean turned me onto it and I had to let my DS try it. I used shaved ham and shaved roast beef too and it's the perfect combo. I'm posting a picture of Dory's sandwich because it turned out prettier than mine. Thanks so much for posting! :)"
"This is the 3rd. time I made this sandwich, I found just about the same recipe in Taste of Home, I used a loaf of Itilian bread & hollowed it out some, added shaved ham & shaved roastbeef. My very good friend mydesigirl came for a visit & I served this to her, she loved it too!"
"I liked it, but it seemed more like a chip dip than a sandwich spread."
"Delicious! You can imagine how upset I was that there was no roast beef or french bread in the house. as suggested, i used onion powder as a subsitute and did it quite fine. :) It's in the fridge right now and I hope to have more tomorrow! thank you for this recipe!"
"This was great! We took it camping for sandwiches. Excellent picnic food as it can be made ahead and bread won't get soggy. Tastes better the 2nd and third day."
"Very yummy! Great for lunch or dinner and it would be perfect for a party. I made as directed using Marie's Homemade French Bread #117176. Thanks, Windchime, for sharing such a great recipe!"
"Excellent!! I made this for a group of 12 women, and they all loved it. I made one with turkey and one with roast beef."
"This is very good. I was out of green onions so I used onion powder and also added some chives. I also chopped my meat up in the spread. Will definately be making this again."
