Hawaiian Sandwich

I received this recipe from a friend while we were working at our voting precinct. It is so good, the possibilities are endless, and it feeds quite a few people. This is a great appetizer, light lunch, or even for supper during these hot days. Served with chips and dip it is a complete meal.

How to Make Hawaiian Sandwich


  • 1Place loaf of Hawaiian Bread in the freezer for a few minutes before assembling sandwich. This makes for easier slicing crosswise of the bread. Mix softened cream cheese, ranch dressing mix, minced onions and minced chives together. Slice bread into 3rds crosswise. Spread some of the cream cheese mixture on the bottom layer. Place a few of the sliced olives on the cream cheese and layer as much ham as you want on that layer. Place middle layer of bread on top of ham and repeat with the cream cheese mixture, olives, and ham. If you have any cream cheese mixture left, you can spread on cut side of top layer of the bread and place top on sandwich. Place sandwich in an air tight container and refrigerate for several hours. I put the sandwich back in the foil pan and placed it back in the bag and placed in refrigerator.
  • 2NOTE: You can use deli turkey, deli roast beef, deli ham or combine the meats if you want. Before serving, you can add sliced tomatoes, shredded lettuce, whatever you want. This is great served with salsa and chips.
