Italian Sub Sandwiches

Pin It

When I think of a good, classic sub sandwich, the picture above comes to mind.  I call this an Italian sub.  I know people have their own definitions of exactly what an Italian sub should made out of, but this is what I go with and it is everything I want in a sandwich and more.  I give it the Italian moniker because it has salami, capicola, and provolone making up most of the main body (don't forget about the homemade roll).  Add lettuce, tomato and onion for flavor and crunch.  The vinegar, herbs, garlic, and oil dance around the edges of all that yumminess for a can't go wrong "sammich" that is sure to satisfy for a game day or any day. A few potato chips and some hot pepperoncini on the side-- score!

*Note-- Below is the amount and type of meat that I like to use, but feel free to use the meats according to your own taste, as well as the amount.
