I think I may of found a favorite.  I think it may be a Stromboli Sandwich.  Instead of one large sandwich that has to be sliced you could purchase small crusty rolls and make individual sandwiches, change from mozzarella chesse to provolone cheese.  Yummy

Stromboli Sandwich

1 pound of mild italian sausage
(I used 3 links mild and 3 links Hot sausage)
1/2 pound of ground beef
(I used the meatball mix which is a blend Beef, Pork, & Veal)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green pepper
1 (4 ounce) can of mushrooms
1 (8 ounce) can tomato sauce
1 (8 ounce) can of Hunts tomato paste with Italian Herbs
1/4 cup water
1/4 tsp crushed oregano
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 loaf of Italian bread (unsliced)
1 to 2 (6 ounce) package of Mozzarella cheese

Using a dutch oven or cast iron skillet brown the sausage (remove the casings) and the ground beef. Drain the fat, and add the onion, green pepper and mushrooms. Continue to cook over med heat for about 5 minutes. Add the tomato sauce, tomato paste, grated parmesan cheese, water, and seasoning. Let this simmer for about 10 minutes. In the meantime, using a sheet pan, cut a thin layer off the top of the bread and scoop out the center to form a shell for the meat mixture. Make sure the bread is laying level on the sheet pan. Layer the cheese in the bottom of the shell, add the hot mixture of meat and layer more cheese on top. Bake for 6-8 minutes until the cheese has melted and slightly brown. Remove from oven and cut in slices to serve.
