TNT Tuesday - Sub Ring

Wow! I know I have missed posting the "TNT Tuesday" Recipe for several weeks and I do apologize. I tend to bite off more than I can chew and just can't seem to juggle everything!

Anyhoo - this is a very simple recipe, but one my teenage daughter requests a lot. Everyone is amazed at how great the bread taste and they think I have slaved in the kitchen all day making homemade bread! Ha!! - I actually took this to a birthday party last month and everyone kept saying where did this bread come from. I simply said "I made it!" My philosophy on "homemade" is - if it didn't come in your house looking like it is when you serve it, and you actually had to prepare it in your home - - then it is homemade! :o)

This recipe originally came from The Pampered Chef years ago when I was a consultant.....

Sub Sandwich Ring


2 Pillsbury French Loaf (canned bread in the dairy section of your local grocery store)
Italian Seasoning Mix (Garlic, Oregano, Basil)
Lunchmeat of your choice (Ham, Turkey, Roast Beef, all the above.....)
Cheese slices of your choice
Veggie toppings of your choice (lettuce, onions, tomato, olives, etc)
Italian Dressing
Condiments of your choice (mayonaise, mustard, etc)

* Preheat oven according to cooking directions on bread label.
* Take the french loaf out of the packaging and place one loaf on your pan in a semi-circle shape. Then place the other french loaf in a semi-circle shape where it makes an "O" shape. Pinch the ends together that meet so it forms one large circle. Make sure and pinch all the way around so it does not separate. (This dough is "stretchy" so feel free to pull on it and make your circle as big as your pan will allow.
* Take a serrated knife and cut about 6 diagnol slits on the top of the bread to allow the bread to expand while cooking. These do not need to be deep at all, just use the tip of the knife.
* Spray the dough with Pam Spray or brush lightly with oil of your choice.
* Sprinkle on the seasonings of your choice.
* Bake in the oven 25-30 minutes.
* While bread is cooking you can cut up your veggie toppings.
* Once bread is done, let cool then cut the bread in half horizontally to remove the "top" of the bread.
* Spread with your condiments of choice (Mayonaise, mustard, etc) layer on your meat, cheese and veggies, sprinkle with Italian Dressing and then replace the top.

* Then you are ready to slice into serving sizes!

(If you do not want to make the "circle", you can easily lay two loaves straight out on your pan and make two sub sandwiches as well... The circle just makes it "fun")

Happy Cooking!
