  • 1 can (11 oz) refrigerated Pillsbury™ Original French Bread
  • 1/2 lb sliced deli roast beef
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 cup roasted red bell peppers
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil
  • 1/2 lb deli roast beef, sliced
  • 6 slices Provolone cheese


  • 1
    Preheat oven to 375°F. Open French bread tube. Remove from wrapper. Use a knife to slice down the center of the dough, leaving about 1/2 inch uncut at the bottom of the loaf. Make slits into the loaf from top to bottom, about every 2 inches, leaving about 1/2 inch of the dough intact at the bottom of the loaf.
  • 2
    Peel the dough open, creating a flat space in the center. Place on a parchment-lined baking sheet.
  • 3
    Mix garlic, mayonnaise, and Dijon together. Spread over the middle of the dough.
  • 4
    Top with roasted red bell peppers, basil, roast beef, and Provolone.
  • 5
    Pull the flaps of the dough up over the filling. Pinch firmly at the top to secure the dough together over the filling ingredients.
  • 6
    Bake in preheated oven for 12-16 minutes, or until golden brown and bread is cooked through.

More About This Recipe

  • I've never been a sucker for sandwiches. Growing up with a health-focused mom, I always figured salad was the way to eat. So I rarely took time to enjoy a proper sammie. That all changed my sophomore year of college, when a little sandwich joint opened around the corner from my bio class. The place was dingy. The sandwiches? Divine. There's just something about meat and cheese served between two slices of hot French bread. It's…perfection. And since today is National Eat a Hoagie Day, you're really going to want to dig into a good one! Just five basic ingredients are needed: Pillsbury French Bread, roast beef, roasted red peppers, fresh basil, and provolone. You'll also want to mix up a batch of garlic aioli (fancy schmants wording for flavored mayo spread) by mixing together a finely diced clove of garlic with mayo and a smidgen of Dijon mustard. Part of the fun of this recipe: It's all baked together inside a glorious bread braid. Slice hot out of the oven, and bite into your slice the second it's cool enough to eat. Happy Hoagie Day!
