To make the pocket in the bread.. Cut a 2 inch section from a crusty bread and hollow out one end. You can toast this under the broiler if you would like, but then that defeats the purpose of staying out of the kitchen. Spread the vegetable spread inside the hollowed bread then add the sliced beef. Top with additional chopped tomatoes and arugula leaves for a garnish.
The deli Beef Pockets are super cute as a crostini, just cut the crusty bread into 1/4 inch slices, toast one side and spread with vegetable spread, meat, and garnish. Recipe http://serveitupsassy.com/category/holidays/summer/
