Circle "Sammy"

Circle Sandwich is hands down one of our favorite family meals. As far as I know, my mom "invented" it some time in the mid 90s, and we've been loving it ever since. It's perfect for a family dinner, a potluck or for taking a meal to someone in need. 

Here are the ingredients,

For the bread,

2 tubes of Pillsbury French Loaf (I grabbed these at 50% off at the store last week!)
1 tablespoon of seasoning (I use Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt and pepper)

To make the bread, spray a baking sheet or pizza stone with Pam. Then, you just need to open your tubes of French Loaf and pinch the ends together, so they form a circle. Next, you make a few slits in the top of the bread with a paring knife and spray with Pam. Finally, you "fill" the slits with your seasoning blend. Bake as directed until the circle loaf is golden brown.

While your bread is baking, you can prepare your sandwich fillings. I used,

Italian dressing (Also a must!)
3 different kinds of deli meat (I used chicken, ham and pepperoni. The pepperoni is a must!)
2 different kinds of cheese (I used provolone and cheddar.)
A few different kinds of your favorite sandwich veggies
Mayonnaise, Mustard, etc.

Once your bread has cooled enough for you to cut it, slice it in half. Dress the inside with Italian dressing and layer your meat and cheese. Add the veggies. My mom usually serves extra sandwich dressing (mayonnaise, mustard, etc.) on the side at the table.

See, pretty easy! But so, so good.

  1. I'm pinning this. It's a great idea for a simple food to serve to guests! Sometimes you have to choose between a clean house and an involved recipe (well, I do anyway!). ;)
