Super Heroes~ A Mighty Sandwich

Print Friendly Version of this pagePrint Get a PDF version of this webpagePDF
Super Heroes, or an extra large sandwich, have been popular for years. I remember making these for my mother when she would have gatherings at the house with her coworkers. Layers or deli meat and spinach dip piled on an Italian bread loaf. That was about 1990. Ever since, these sandwiches are a go-to when I need a quick and satisfying meal for a large group or for our family's Friday night dinners.

At the end of the week, we are all looking for a break from our work {whether it be studies, house cleaning or helping parents at school}. A fun dinner and a movie is the way to wind down in our home. I don't worry about being to health conscious as you can see from the following menu.

Super Heroes

German Chocolate Brownies
Simply frost your favorite brownie with coconut pecan frosting.

Super Hero
1 loaf of Italian bread
1 c spinach dip (recipe follows)
1 lb roast beef deli meat
1 lb turkey deli meat
1/2 lb sandwich pepperoni
1/2 lb provolone cheese slices

Cut loaf of bread in half lengthwise. Pull out some of the inside to make room for the filling. Spoon the spinach dip into the bottom piece of loaf. Spread evenly. Top with layers of meat and cheese. Place second piece of loaf atop sandwich and slice into 8-12 pieces. Secure pieces with toothpicks.

Spinach Dip
1 package vegetable soup mix (recommend Knorr)
3/4 c real mayo
3/4 c sour cream
1 2 oz jar of pimentos
1 10 oz pkg frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 8 0z can water chestnuts, drained and chopped

Mix all ingredients well. Cover and refrigerate at least an hour.

    What time does this usually happen so that I can be there next Friday! It all looks delicious.

  3. Our family loves a hero too - I think that might have to make those this weekend. I never think about that - Your picks were too cute! Now on to those brownies - I LOVE german chocolate cake and I have never thought about making brownies into that perfect taste but it makes so much sense! Thanks - your meal looks like it scored a touchdown!

  4. You have great meal ideas! And your pictures are always very appetizing. After looking at your pictures of the brownies, I think I need to make some brownies very soon.

  5. NP- 7 pm EST; stop by any time!
    Rindy- These are easy and they keep well, we enjoyed them as snacks for the next couple of days
    Monica-Brownies are an all time favorite; I think I could eat them for breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, snack, anytime

    I tried this recipe and it will last me for breakfast, lunch and dinner for maybe a week! LOL (Hubby on a meat free binge.) It is good, but really GINORMOUS to take a bite! Next time I think I will use skinnier sweet frenchette loaves. Leave out the pepperoni (tummy issues) and maybe add avocado and tomato. Had leftover spinach dip with tortilla chips. Yummy! Thank you for sharing your recipe.

    1. Yes, it is indeed a very large sandwich! We have a big family so don't have much trouble conquering it; but I do like to make it for festive gatherings to. :-)


Catching my breath. Be back ASAP.
