Sandwich Loaf Supreme

Ingredients

 
1 day old loaf
6 slices lean cooked ham
2 hard-boiled eggs, shell removed
4 gherkins, sliced
Olives
Butter or margarine
500 grams cream cheese
Mayonnaise
1 Tomato, small
Salt and pepper
 
Method
 
Remove crusts from loaf and cut lengthwise into five equal slices.
Butter each slice and spread the lower one with the ham.
Spread the next slice with cream cheese and place on top of the ham slice.
Spread the third slice with crushed eggs, seasoned and mixed to a spreading consistency with mayonnaise; place on top of the cheese slice.
Spread the fourth slice with gherkins, place on top of the egg slice.
Put the fifth slice butter side down on top, so that it has the form of the original loaf.
Cover with plastic film. Refrigerate with weight on top overnight.
Soften the remaining cream cheese with a little milk if necessary, and coat the top and sides of the loaf.
Decorate with slices of tomato and olives.
