Tested till perfect Team Sandwich

Team Sandwich

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.
