Lawn games and lush surroundings need a sandwich that fuels you for more fun while also indulging in the luxury of the occasion. And what better sandwich is there than Picnic Sammies?

In fact, Picnic Sammies have so many layers you'll need to use entire hollowed-out loaves to make sure everything fits... just like how you'll want to cram every last bit of enjoyment out of your picnic. These sandwiches will ensure lunch is always the best part of the day!
Cut the loaves in half horizontally.
Hollow out the tops and bottoms of the loaves, leaving 1/2-inch shells. You can use the removed bread for another food project if desired.
Combine the olive oil and garlic. Brush the oil and garlic mixture on the inside of the bread shells.
Sprinkle the inside of the bread shells with 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning.
Layer the bottom of each loaf with 1/4 of the roast beef, 1/4 of the mozzarella, 1/4 of the basil, 1/4 of the tomatoes, 1/4 of the salami, 1/4 of the artichokes, 1/4 of the salad greens, 1/4 of the chicken, and 1/4 of the onion.
Repeat the layers 3 times.
Season the sandwich filling with salt, pepper, and the remaining Italian seasoning.
Drizzle the sandwich fillings with any of the remaining oil mixture.
Top with the bread tops.
Wrap tightly and refrigerate for at least 1 hour.
