Party Sandwich Loaf

This is not about the picture, its about the great idea. Below is a different recipe than the pic; however, the idea is great. I would not mix it up so much. Suggest flavoring up the cream cheese with a savory cream cheese mixed with regular cream cheese so it will not be strong. Follow your favorite recipes for tuna, chicken, or seafood salads. Or layer with butter, cream cheese, and slices of meats and cheese, with thin slices of tomatoes and onions (if desired) So it is the idea that I am passing on not the actual recipe. Make it your own. The recipe describes making a round cake like form. Suggest going with the loaf method as pictured. Make it your own. You may even want to stick with one kind of filling for the whole thing. Do your thing!
