Another sandwich you and your hubby may find enjoyable is one France called a "Tartine de Provence"
Ciabatta works well for this and it is similar to the muffelatta. You spread it with good olive oil, fresh basil, roast red peppers, nice ripe tomatoes very thinly sliced (or good sundried if it is cool weather), sweet onions, sliced as the tomatoes and a sprinkle of fresh thyme. Wrap in parchment paper very tightly and wrap with kitchen twine. Set a cutting board on top and place a weight on it (I use my CI skillet). Let sit for about 2-3 hours, slice and serve.
