Italian Ciabatta Sandwich | This sandwich is piled high with meat, cheese and marinated vegetables! Perfect for game day, a picnic, or a busy weekend lunch. Make this delicious sandwich the day before, wrap it in foil and pop in a heated oven for a crispy melted cheese sandwich packed with flavor!
Think ahead, order a 3 foot long roll. Take this sandwich one step further and create an outstanding 3 foot sandwich worthy of feeding a crowd! This is the one sandwich I make over and over again. I make this when I know my hungry crew will be out working in the yard Saturday morning and need a hearty lunch. I also take it tailgating! Just like things staying cold in an ice chest they also will stay hot! Keep the hot sandwich wrapped in foil and store in a ice chest. To help keep it hot, wrap a couple of bricks with foil, heat in the oven and put those in the ice chest.
