susan s big wonderful picnic sandwich


susan branch has the most delightful books (and illustrations) filled with the most interesting recipes and home-making ideas. this recipe comes from her "summer" book, with a few of my own personal changes. feel free to switch ingredients, more or less, to suit your own tastes. cooking time is "pressing" the sandwich.

  1. Slice loaf horizontally
  2. Separate
  3. Mix mayo and garlic
  4. Smear 1 / 3 over one of the bread halves
  5. Layer half of the tomato slices over the mayo
  6. Add cheese
  7. Lettuce
  8. Pepper slices
  9. Turkey
  10. 1 / 2 of remaining dressing
  11. Carrots
  12. Onion
  13. And remaining tomato slices
  14. Spread remaining dressing over remaining bread
  15. Put the bread back together
  16. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap or wax paper
  17. Place wrapped sandwich on a bread board
  18. Put a plate on top of it
  19. And something heavy on top of that--i use a cast iron frying pan
  20. Picnic idea: put sandwich in the bottom of your cooler
  21. And weight it down with picnic stuff -- this will achieve the same results !
