Playboy Sandwich

In the days before there was a Subway in almost every town, Playboy Magazine published a recipe for a sandwich that was delicious. Here it is: 1 loaf of sourdough bread, split lengthwise; hard boiled egg; sliced Genoa salami; slice provolone; smoked ham; sliced cucumber; sliced red onion; sliced tomato; crushed red pepper; Italian pepper salad (available in a deli); minced parsley; olive oil; red wine vinegar.

Put the two halves of bread on a sheet of aluminum foil. Sprinkle the bread with olive oil and wine vinegar. Arrange the tomato, egg, onion, salami, ham, cucumber, pepper salad, salami and cheese evenly along one side of the loaf. Sprinkle prudently with the red pepper. Put the lid on and wrap tightly in the aluminum foil. Marinate the sandwich unrefrigerated at least an hour before enjoying, turning it over at least once so the juices can percolate. Serves two very hungry people or three hungry ones. Pass the Tums!

Hint: If you can't find Italian pepper salad, use sun dried tomatoes and canned pimientos. It's not the same, but it's still delicious.
