Picnic Basket Baguettes
1/2 of an 8 ounce container soft style cream cheese with chives and onion
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 tablespoon Dijon style mustard
1/4 teaspoon garlic pepper
1 8 ounce loaf sourdough bread or French bread
8 ounces boneless fully cooked smoked turkey breast, sliced
4 slices Provolone or Swiss cheese
1 7 ounce jar roasted sweet peppers, drained and sliced or 2 red and/or
green sweet peppers, roasted* and sliced
1 cup spinach leaves
For the cream cheese spread, stir together the cream cheese, lemon juice,
mustard and garlic pepper. Split sourdough loaf horizontally and spread
cut sides with the cream cheese spread. On bottom half of the loaf, layer
turkey, Provolone or Swiss cheese, sweet peppers and spinach. Cover with
top of loaf. Slice crosswise into 4 pieces. Wrap sandwiches in plastic wrap
or waxed paper and chill until serving time, up to 6 hours.
Makes 4 servings.
To roast sweet peppers: Halve peppers; remove stems, seeds and
membranes. Place peppers, cut side down, on a foil lined baking sheet.
Bake in a 425F oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until skin is bubbly and
browned. Place in a clean brown paper bag; seal and let stand for 10 to 30
minutes or until cool. Peel and use as directed.
Make ahead tip: Mix the cream cheese spread ingredients; cover and chill
up to 24 hours. Rinse spinach leaves; pat dry, cover and chill up to 24
hours. In minutes the next morning: Assemble the sandwiches, wrap and
surround them with ice packs in a cooler.

Chicken Cobb Sandwich
Two small loaves French bread
3 skinless, boneless chicken breast, grilled
12 pieces bacon, fried crisp
1 avocado, peeled and seeded
12 small, crisp lettuce leaves
Dressing
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
6 tablespoons mayonnaise
4 ounces gorgonzola or blue cheese, softened
Combine ingredients until mixed well.
To assemble sandwiches: Slice the bread into 24 thin slices; toast the bread lightly on
both sides.
Spread the inside of each piece of bread with sandwich dressing. Cut the grilled chicken
breast into diagonal pieces to fit the small bread rounds. Top 12 pieces of bread and
dressing with chicken, bacon pieces, avocado slices and lettuce. Top with remaining
bread that has been spread with dressing.
Serve at once or cover with clean, dry lettuce leaves to keep moist.

To this list I would add:

Green onions, finely chopped
Cooked ham, finely chopped
Cheddar cheese, grated
Black olives, chopped
Green olives, chopped

And there must be scores of others.
