Southern Living Cooking School


4 (3-ounce) white sub rolls, split
4 tablespoons yellow mustard
4 kosher pickle halves, sliced lengthwise into thirds
6 ounces thinly sliced deli roast turkey
6 ounces thinly sliced deli ham
6 ounces thinly sliced deli roast beef
6 (1-ounce) Swiss cheese slices
2 tablespoons olive oil


Spread cut sides of each roll evenly with mustard. Layer bottom halves of rolls evenly with pickle slices and next 4 ingredients; top with remaining roll halves, pressing sandwiches together gently. Brush outside of rolls evenly with olive oil.

Place sandwiches directly on cooking grate of grill, and top with a baking sheet. Place a heavy skillet on top of baking sheet. Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium heat (300° to 350°) 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until cheese is melted and sandwich is browned.
