The original: I don't want to cut and paste it here, because it's at a food magazine website, so I'll link it. This sandwich looks damn good.
 
Big Sandwich
 
Now, there is a lot more you can do with this. Here are some things I think might make a great sandwich of similar construct:
 
Bacon
capicola
ham
roasted red pepper
kalamata olives
marinated mushrooms or artichoke hearts
swiss cheese
provolone cheese
onion
spinach
tomato
 
All on a similar loaf of french bread, or sourdough.
 
OK, let's have it; what would YOU do?

Well, for starters I'd not slice up the round loaf for layering. I'd do the muffaletta thing.

Heating it up doesnt appeal to me. And I would skip the bacon.I guess that sandwich just doesnt grab me.I much prefer a muffaletta with Italian meats and cheeses, lettuce, tomato, onion, olive salad,olive oil and oregano all on a good crusty bread.

Mosca, No french fries?
 
I would downsize the slices of bread so I can get a good bite into it.

Pastrami
Corned Beef
Caeser salad dressing
Thin slices of a garlic pickel sliced lengthwise
Utz chips on the side
Maybe a beer or 6

I like the muffaletta idea, but then it would be a different sandwich... it would be a muffaletta. I'd do that, I love muffalettas, but I'm trying to riff on this idea instead. I can get the olive relish/paste at Wegman's, that would be pretty good I think.  Boiled egg is a good idea.
 
Chewy, good corned beef and pastrami is hard to get around here, it's available but dear. But yeah, that would be good.

I'd like to take a run at it -- but without so much b-r-e-a-d !!!

My first thought was to address that by upping the meat quotient!

I would find a way of layering this sandwich as to have a different taste for every layer. One layer could be Italian, One American, one layer Greek. That way each layer could be eaten in a normal size, less bread with a different array of ingredients...............The Best Bill

I'd go for it minus the horseradish!

Also I'd substitete Tzatziki for the mayo and Feta for the American, not to mention a layer of sliced lamb.
