Giant Deli Sandwich

No recipe image available.A terrific sandwich for tailgating, potlucks, parties—and for celebrating Oktoberfest. This giant German deli-style sandwich is filled with layers of sliced Muenster cheese, assorted deli meats like ham and liverwurst, sliced tomato and dill pickle, and spread with a tasty German dressing between the layers.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 loaf (1 pound) unsliced round bread or French bread
2 tablespoons butter, softened
8 ounces Wisconsin Muenster cheese, sliced
8 ounces sliced deli meats (ham, salami, liverwurst)
1 large tomato, sliced
1 large dill pickle, sliced lengthwise
Lettuce leaves

German Dressing:
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tablespoon coarse grained mustard
2 teaspoons prepared horseradish
1 1/2 tablespoons drained capers

Cooking Directions:

  1. Cut bread into halves, horizontally. Hollow out halves, leaving shells about 3/4 inch thick. (Reserve crumbs for another use.)
  2. Butter cut sides of bread.
  3. Layer remaining ingredients, starting and ending with cheese, and spreading German Dressing between layers.
  4. Cut into 6 wedges and serve immediately, or wrap loaf securely in plastic or foil and pack for a picnic.
  5. For German Dressing: In small bowl, whisk mayonnaise, mustard and horseradish. Mix in drained capers.
