Ingredients

1 (1-pound) round sourdough or white bread loaf
2 cups mayonnaise, divided
1/4 pound thinly sliced roast beef
1 slice (about 1 ounce) provolone or Swiss cheese

Preparation

  1. Cut thin slice off top of bread loaf; set aside. With serrated knife, cut around sides of bread, leaving 1/4-inch-thick bread shell. Lift out center portion of bread; horizontally cut removed bread round into 3 slices of equal thickness.
  2. Spread 1 tablespoon mayonnaise onto bottom of hollowed out loaf; top with layers of roast beef and provolone cheese. Cover with bottom bread slice and red peppers.
  3. Spread top of middle bread slice with half of mustard; place over peppers. Top with layers of ham and Cheddar cheese. Spread remaining bread slice with remaining mustard; place over ham and Cheddar cheese. Top with pickles and onion. Replace top of bread loaf.
  4. Reserve 1/3 cup mayonnaise; set aside. Frost outside of entire loaf of bread with remaining mayonnaise. Tint reserved 1/3 cup mayonnaise with red food coloring; spoon into pastry bag fitted with writing tip. Pipe red mayonnaise onto bread to resemble stitches on baseball.
