This was such an easy meal to make. Publix carries a French baguette that works great for this since its wider than typical french bread. I picked the one with poppy seed and it was delish. Came together so fast! Served with salad and baked potato. It was a pretty big sandwich which is not the norm when it comes to "actual" portions. Will definitely make again.
