Panera Bread Restaurant Recipe
2 loaves Panera Bread Ciabatta
1/2 cup Panera Bread Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
12 ounces sliced provolone
1 pound thinly sliced smoked ham
8 ounces thinly sliced Genoa salami
8 ounces thinly sliced prosciutto or capicola
1 (12 oz.) jar roasted red peppers, drained
2 cups shredded lettuce
2 tomatoes, thinly sliced
1 teaspoon dried oregano
Slice the bread lengthwise and open it up like a book. Brush the bottom halves of the bread with some of the vinaigrette. Layer half of the provolone over the bottom half of both sandwiches. Layer on the ham, salami, and prosciutto, folding the sliced meats to build volume into the sandwiches. Top with the peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, and oregano.
Drizzle with the remaining vinaigrette and then top with the other half of the provolone and the bread. Wrap the sandwiches in wax paper or foil. To serve, unwrap and slice them into quarters on a diagonal.
