Who Says you Can't Have Everything!

This is such a great recipe to serve a crowd if you want a hot sammy but do not have the time to make individual servings for a crowd.  Make your bread if you are an over achiever. I like to over achieve from time to but lets get real right... it is not always possible. Go to your local bakery or grocery and pick up a fresh loaf or two.  I do some canning and I used my hot pepper pickle mix to substitute the pepperoncini slices.  Another shortcut is instead of using fresh herbs from the garden use an Italian dried spice blend. Your taste buds will water on this one and you will appear to have Everything Together including the bread, even if you used some shortcuts.
Italian Toasted Sub
1 loaf Italian bread (I used an everything bread)
1 C mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried parsley
4-5 basil leaves, chopped
1 teaspoon oregano
1 teaspoon thyme
1 T pepperoncini brine from the jar
1/4 C red onion, sliced
1/4 C pepperoncini pepper slices
Assorted salamis
Sliced provolone
Sliced mozzarella
Sliced muenster cheese
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.  Slice the bread at 1-inch intervals, but don't slice all the way through the bottom.  Mix the mayo, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, basil, oregano, thyme, and the pepperoncini brine together.  Spread this mixture down in between the sliced parts of the bread.  Alternating the cheese varieties, shove a slice of cheese into each cut.  Then alternating the salami varieties, shove about five slices into every other cut.  Shove the pepperoncini slices and red onion slices into the remaining cuts, meaning the cuts with no salami in it.  Wrap the whole thing tightly with foil and bake about 25-30 minutes or until the outsides are a little crispy and the cheese is all melted.
