Recipe of the day: The Big Sandwich

Big sandwich
My favourite/easiest recipe for a pot luck is a BIG SANDWICH. I take whatever sandwich ingredients I feel like and turn it into a large ring shaped sandwich for guests to cut their own piece from. It amazes me what a hit this always is. Here is a picture of the sandwich while it’s being assembled. Here’s how to make it: The key is to find a large calabrese bread ring. Cut it in half. You can use any sandwich fillings you like. This time I chose, spreading it a mixture of feta and pesto that’s whirled together in a food processor. You’ll find the Pesto recipe in a video or in our June issue for the Feta Spread on the second page of the pdf beside the video.) It’s topped with chunks of roasted chicken (the grocery-store rostisserie kind), spicy salami and slices of tomato, avocado and roasted red peppers. I topped these with arugula leaves and sandwiches the pieces together. I use the bag the bread came in to transport it. Since it’s the perfect size it usually travels well, without falling apart.
