Remember the Dagwood? The many layered sandwich filled with crazy ingredients. There always seemed to be a live fish in there somewhere. Who has whole fish in their fridge and who would put it on a sandwich? How did Dagwood get Blondie anyway?
The major problem with the sandwich, aside from that crazy fish, was that it was impossible to get your mouth around. After months of testing we’ve figured out how to make the perfect Dagwood that actually fits in your mouth.

- Take a loaf of unsliced Italian bread and cut it lengthwise down the middle.
- Fill it with as many ingredients as possible.
- Wrap tightly in saran wrap and store, weighted, in fridge overnight.
Weights can be improvised from whatever you have on hand, bricks, cans of beans, a case of pop, anything just so long as it flattens out the sandwich to produce one delicious cornucopia of savoury, sandwich-y delights.
