Italian Sub on Tomato Basil Focaccia

Since I have kind of been on a kick lately with "quick and easy" posts, I wanted to share with you the EASIEST party sandwich on the face of the earth.  I know this would be so much better if I were to take the time and make the foccacia bread from scratch, but sometimes when I am in a bind and I want something to look pretty for my party I take a cheaters route and in this case... my result is always wonderful.

The biggest thing to remember when hosting is that sometimes simple is better. If you have spent 3 hours decorating cupcakes, take a break and make a really easy appetizer, sandwich, dip, or salad. Sometimes things I just "throw together" on the fly are the things I get the most positive feed back on.

This past Saturday, I held a baby shower for my sister-in-law and wanted something filling but pretty to put on the table amongst the other lighter items. I had made this delectable little sandwich for our ugly sweater party and never even got a bite... so I thought I would make it again. The most beautiful thing about a my mind... is that they never get old and the possibilities are endless.

For this, I used an Italian Sub theme but can already tell you that next time I am going to try to make a caprese sandwich with thick balsamic glaze. I think anything you add will turn out just fine. Here's what I did:

Italian Sub on Tomato Basil Focaccia
Servings: Twelve (12)

One Large Archer Farms Tomato Basil Focaccia (from Target's bakery; any round focaccia will work.)
1/4 Lb. Hard Salami
1/4 Lb. Thinly Sliced Honey Ham
1/4 Lb. Thinly Sliced Turkey Breast
1/4 Lb. Pepperoni
1/2 Lb. Provolone Cheese
4 slices bib leaf lettuce 
Mustard and Mayo (on the side)  

Carefully slice focaccia in half lengthwise (like a hamburger bun)
Assemble sandwich to your liking
Cut into multiple slices and place a toothpick in each sandwich to hold them together (if necessary)
Serve on a cake stand or decorative plate with mustard and mayo on the side. 

Note: If you prefer to add mustard and/or mayo to the sandwich prior to serving the sandwich will likely get soggy and any leftovers will not store well.

Wasn't that easy? But yet it looks really pretty... 

I love easy little pretty party ideas. Hope you enjoy!
