In Hoppenworld we all know what this is; the best crowd-pleasing sandwich you will ever serve! “The Sub” as we so affectionately call it made its first appearance at our annual Super bowl party in the late 90’s with our good friend Kim. It grew in popularity quickly as everyone had left the party with a handwritten recipe for future use. It began to show up at birthday parties, boat trips, and family gatherings on a regular basis. Bring it to your next gathering as an appetizer or main dish. Either way there won’t be any leftovers!
(1) 8 oz. block of cream cheese-softened
1 T Worchester sauce
¼ cup chopped green onion
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
1 large loaf French bread
1 jar sweet sandwich stacker pickles
½ lb. deli roast beef
½ lb. deli ham
Mix together the first four ingredients well and set aside. Drain pickles and lay out stackers on paper towel to absorb excess liquid. Slice the French bread lengthwise and lay out open face. Make “boats” out of each side by removing a portion of the bread on each side of the loaf. Save the bread chunks you’ve removed for another use. Fill each side of the loaf with the cream cheese mixture. Now scrape the sides of the bowl with that left over bread you saved for a quick snack. Layer one side with the roast beef and the other side with the ham. Layer one of the sides with the pickles, put it back together and wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least six hours. Slice, serve, and watch it disappear!
