Family Sub Sandwich

Big, hot, cheesy subs are a great fallback when the family is just sure they are starving or when the guys pop by on short notice to help hubby with some project.  I can feed a crew in less than 15 minutes for very little and often can use up leftovers odds and ends of cheese and lunch meat in my fridge doing it.  Here's one that got even my little guy eating spinach.

This started with a loaf of french bread with sesame seeds, sliced lengthwise.  Pile the bottom side first with a thin layer of salami and then with a thick layer of thinly sliced ham.  On the top side, place a thick layer of fresh spinach leaves.  Drizzle with olive oil and season with garlic salt and pepper.  Top with a row of thick sharp cheddar slices followed by a layer of thick colby jack slices.
Toast in the oven for about 10 minutes or until the cheese is melted through and the top of the ham is toasted.  Carefully flip the cheese half on top of the meat and slice into 1 inch sandwiches.  Serve with chips, fruit or some sort of salad.  This keeps well in the fridge for a cold lunch the next day too!
