Baked Sandwich

I was having a very informal luncheon for some of my oldest friends recently and a couple of them ask if I would make my Baked Sandwich. I thought that was a great idea, and then I decided to share it with all of you. The Baked Sandwich is often times requested from family and friends as one of their favorites. It is a great dish to make for a small gathering, it can be made the day before and cooked right before the guest arrive, it is a hot dish to serve that you don't have to be in the kitchen with, but rather can be spending time with your guest. One of the nice features to this sandwich is that you can freeze it up to 3 months, just reheat it and it's as good as freshly made. I will often times freeze it in individual portions, for those times when just one or two people need a quick lunch.

  20. This sounds delicious. Is the 2 cups of soup measured as the thick condensed right out of the can, or thinned with the usual amount of milk?

    1. Hi Gail,
      I did not use milk to thin the soup, I just heat it straight from the can. Sure hope you enjoy the Baked Sandwich and thanks so much for stopping by!

  27. What a fabulous idea. This reminds me of an easier monte cristo. Has anyone tried jelly instead of the soup? I'm thinking of paring this with a mimosa for brunch bliss.

  28. These were great everyone loved it. The only thing I did different was make homemade tomato soup. And we topped it with that. Definitely a keeper

  29. This is a good idea with the soup! There is another recipe for hosting called the Italian Bake and it is the same only you also use salami and I think roasted red peppers and no soup. Was very good but next time I'd use mozzarella on that one! Will try this soon! Thanks
