WHAT IS A BUNDTWICH?
A bundtwich is a kind of sandwich created by Pillsbury with their refrigerated French bread. The easy idea is to place two rolls of their dough in half circles in a fluted bundt pan and bake it. Then slice the loaf in half for an amazing sandwich bread that everyone will love. Fill with your favorite toppings for an epic BIG sandwich that makes for the best party sandwiches ideas for adults and kids alike.
The original recipes show the bottom half of the loaf "scooped out" to create a "cradle" for the sandwich toppings, but I chose to leave mine as-is.
HOT SANDWICH RECIPES FOR A CROWD
After the bread is baked and the toppings are placed into the sandwich, it's time to transform it into a warm melty lunch.

One for your party and one for you to sample as you bake and prepare it. 😉
Brushing butter mixed with Italian Seasonings onto the top of the bundt bread is a step you don't want to miss.
Then, wrap the entire sandwich in foil and bake until the cheese is nice and melted.
