  • 3 tablespoons honey mustard
  • 2 green onions, chopped
  • 1 (3-ounce) package cream cheese, softened

Preparation

Cut off top one-third of bread loaf, and spread cut side of top with honey mustard; set aside.

Scoop out soft center of remaining bread, leaving a 1/4-inch-thick shell. (Reserve soft center of loaf for other uses, if desired.)

Stir together onions, cream cheese, and mayonnaise; spread in bottom of bread shell. Layer with ham, peppers, and cheeses; cover with bread top, honey mustard side down. Wrap in aluminum foil or a heavy-duty zip-top plastic bag. Place tomato and lettuce in zip-top plastic bags. Surround with ice packs for transport to picnic.
