Big Wheel Loaf

I don't know how this recipe has escaped blog immortality before now--it's terrific and long been a family favorite on my mom's side. You can't make it too far ahead of time because it will get soggy, but you can assemble it a few hours before and bake it just before eating. Try it for your next lunchtime gathering or casual family dinner.

Slice into 6 equal layers and place bottom layer back in round tray:
  • 1 round loaf Hawaiian bread 
Spread first layer with:
  • 2 t. prepared horseradish
Top with:
  • 1/4-pound thinly sliced roast beef
Spread second layer with:
  • 2 T. mayonnaise
Top with:
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
Spread third layer with:
  • 2 T. mustard
Top with:
  • 1/4-pound thinly sliced ham
Spread fourth layer with:
  • 1 medium tomato, sliced
  • 4 slices bacon, cooked and drained
Spread fifth layer with:
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 1/2 medium red onion, thinly sliced
Combine remaining ingredients and spread on sixth layer (top of bread):
  • 1/2 t. onion salt
  • 1/4 c. butter, softened
  • 1 T. sesame seeds, toasted
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes. Cover with foil if top browns too much.

~Serves 6-8
