This is one of the easiest game time and pregame tailgate items around as well as being one of the tastiest. Creamy fresh mozzarella cheese, spicy meats, smokey peppers, brightness of pesto on chewy bread. As long as you give your sandwich at least six hours to meld together — although it’s much better if you make it the day before — you will be rewarded with a sandwich worth waiting for.

Don’t want to use meat? Substitute roasted eggplant or artichoke hearts for cold cuts.
