Dagwood Sandwich

The Dagwood sandwich has been around for quite awhile.  It is a tall, multi-layered sandwich made with a variety of meats, cheeses and condiments.  This mammoth sandwich was named after Dagwood Bumstead, a central character in the 1936 Blondie comic strip.  Dagwood was frequently shown making enormous sandwiches.  There is no set recipe for the Dagwood so feel free to be creative!

INGREDIENTS

10 Slices White Sandwich Bread

1/3 Cup Mayonnaise

2 Tablespoons Yellow Mustard

1 Teaspoon Minced Garlic

1 Pinch Cajun Seasoning

1 Tablespoon Horseradish

1 Tablespoon Pickle Relish

¼ Pound Thinly Sliced Swiss Cheese

¼ Pound Thinly Slice Provolone Cheese

¼ Pound Thinly Sliced Cheddar Cheese

¼ Pound Thinly Sliced Pepper Jack Cheese

¼ Pound Sliced Pepperoni

½ Pound Thinly Sliced Turkey Breast

½ Pound Thinly Sliced Ham

½ Pound Thinly Sliced Roast Beef

½ Pound Thinly Sliced Pastrami

½ Pound Thinly Sliced Salami

5 Pieces Cooked Crisp & Halved Thick Cut Bacon

1 Medium Thinly Sliced Red Onion

1 Medium Thinly Sliced Cucumber

1 Medium Thinly Sliced Tomato

10 Whole Leaf Lettuce Leaves (Washed & Dried)

3 Cherry Tomatoes

3 Small Pickle Slices

3 Long Metal Skewers

Combine mayonnaise, mustard, horseradish and pickle relish in a small bowl.  Add the chopped garlic and Cajun seasoning to the mayonnaise mixture. Arrange 5 bread slices on a large cutting board.  Spread 2 tablespoons of the mayonnaise mixture evenly on each slice.  Layer the meat and cheeses evenly among the bread slices.  Fold the meats so that the sandwiches will stack evenly on top of each other.  Top each of the sandwiches with tomato slices and the remaining bread slices.  Spread about 1 tablespoon of the mayonnaise mixture on top of each sandwich and lay 2 bacon halves on top of each sandwich.  Place 1 cherry tomato and 1 pickle slice through each skewer.  Carefully build the Dagwood sandwich by stacking all 5 sandwiches on top of each other.  Separate the sandwiches by placing 2 lettuce leaves in between.  To keep the sandwich tower from falling over, fit the skewers into the sandwich tower all the way through the center.  To serve, pull off the desired amount of bread, meat and cheese.  Serves a whole village!
