Jamie Hodgson, art director of The Hockey News, says this half-metre-long sandwich, pretzels and beer make a hat-trick combination. Assemble the sandwich ahead, then put it in the oven when guests arrive. Serve on a cutting board with a serrated knife for guests to cut off according to their appetites.

  • Portion size 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 loaf Italian bread
  • 4 oz thinly sliced smoked turkey
  • 1/2 cup chopped roasted red pepper
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 1 jar (6 oz/170 ml) artichoke drained and chopped
  • 5 thin slices Havarti cheese (about 6 oz/175 g)
Hummus:
  • 1 cup chickpea drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
  • 2 tablespoons tahini paste
  • 4 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • pinch each salt and pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic minced

Method

Hummus: In blender or food processor, purée together chickpeas, 1/4 cup (50 mL) water, parsley, tahini, lemon juice, oil, salt and pepper until smooth, scraping down side occasionally. Stir in garlic. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 1 week.)

Cut loaf in half horizontally; with spoon, hollow out, leaving 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick walls. Spread walls with hummus. Top one half with smoked turkey then red pepper and onion. Top other half with artichokes and cheese. Sandwich halves together; wrap in foil. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 hours.)

Bake in 375°F (190°C) oven until cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.
