“Use a good quality ranch dressing for this, it will really improve the taste of the sandwich. All ingredient amounts can be adjusted to suit taste. I like to warm the sandwiches slightly in the microwave just before serving to soften the bread and melt cheese. You can replace the ranch with any similar dressing/spread, Thousand Island dressing will work great with this see Kittencal's Thousand Island Dressing or see Creamy Garlic Dressing

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 loaf French bread, unsliced (sliced lenghwise)
  • softened butter
  • 12 cup ranch dressing (or to taste, I use Peppercorn-Ranch)

  • 4 slices swiss cheese (cut in half to make triangles)
  • thinly sliced tomatoes
  • black pepper

  1. Spread softened butter on one side of the bread and ranch dressing on the other slice of bread (or use ranch on both sides if desired).
  2. Place lettuce leaves over the bottom of the bread that has the ranch dreesing over (use as much lettuce as desired).
  3. Top the lettuce with the turkey slices then American cheese slices then ham then then Swiss cheese triangles and then tomato slices, season the tomatoes with salt and pepper.
  4. Place lettuce leaves over tomatoes and then top with bacon slices.
