THIS pressed sandwich is perfect for picnics as it can’t be squashed in the basket. It’s all the best bits of an antipasto platter squashed into a loaf. You will need something heavy to flatten the loaf, so take some bricks from the garden or use a flat barbell weight!
Rare roast beef slices
Roasted red capsicum
Artichoke – marinated
1. Cut the top from a cob load and hollow out the centre (leftover bread can be turned into bread crumbs or toasted for dip)

3. Begin layering cheese, meat, basil and vegetables, alternating between types
4. Spread Dijon mustard onto the Jarlsberg cheese layer using the back of a spoon
5. Place the top back on the cob loaf
6. Wrap cob in foil
7. Place loaf in the fridge for a few hours or overnight with a heavy weight on top to flatten.
