“This recipe originally came from "Dude Food: Recipes for the Modern Guy" it is inspired by the mile high sandwich put together by Dagwood in the comic strip Blondie. This is one of my favorite recipes, it's very BIG, tasty, and filling. The sweet figs contrast well with the rest of the sandwich. I have modified it a bit, I used cream cheese in place of brie, an italian loaf in place of a long crusty roll, and I added the olive oil and oregeno. If you like this, it's probably worth checking out the cookbook which you can find at Amazon. Hope you like it.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Butter bread and lightly toast.
  3. Thinly slice the figs removing stems.
  4. Cut loaf horizontally down the middle.
  5. Spread all of the cream cheese on both sides of the bread.
  6. Layer half of the figs, all of the ham (folded in half and overlapping across the sandwich), and turkey (layered same way as the ham).
  7. Add a small amount of olive oil and oregeno to taste.
  8. Add all of the slices of cheddar and jack cheese on top.
  9. I criss cross them like a checker board.
  10. Finally top with the remaining figs and put the top of the loaf on.
  11. Cut vertically into 4-5 slices and serve.
  12. Best served fresh while the bread is still warm from the toasting, but if you refrigerate and eat later, microwaving quickly (about 10-15 seconds) seems to do the trick.
