How to make it

  • Here are my tips and advice:
  • Order a large 6 ft bread from your deli or bakery .
  • In my area the bread costs about $20 plus a refundable fee
  • for the board it comes on.
  • I have been making my own 6 foot subs for years for all sorts of parties and I enjoy the ingredients of my choice.
  • Obviously to do this one needs a large enough vehicle
  • to retrieve the bread and counter space to prepare !
  • Pick up the bread on the day you plan to serve this.
  • It will fit into a van.
  • One needs a long table to lay the bread with board on.
  • Slice bread in half with a serrated knife.One person
  • to help hold the bread and the other to slice.
  • Spread one half of bread with mayonnaise and the other half
  • with mustard.
  • Then layer on the meats . It helps to have two people to do this.
  • Use long wooden bamboo skewers or very long toothpicks to secure sections of the sandwich together.
  • One can cut a good 30 pieces - more if cut a bit smaller.
  • Unless one has access to a restaurant walk in cooler to store the sandwich, it is best to prepare 1/2 hour prior to serving.
  • I usually slice the vegetables ahead of time using a hand mandolin or slicer.
  • Vegetables are then stored in plastic storage bags the morning I plan to make the sandwich.
  • I usually try to buy the cold cuts ahead of time on sale. Most cold cuts freeze well.
  • The hardest part is having room enough to prepare the sandwich.
  • The best part is eating it!!!!
  • Of course potato salad, macaroni salad and other party
  • salads are great accompaniments.
