The Shady Porch: Homemade Italian Sub

9.13.2014

Homemade Italian Sub

Like many folks, when Friday night rolls around, we like to hit the local pizzeria for quick takeout. It is nice to have someone else cook occasionally, but once you think about the time involved and realize how much of your hard-earned money the local pizzeria is taking...well, we thought we could do better! One of our favorite menu items has always been the classic Italian submarine sandwich. We learned we could get all of the ingredients, including really good sub buns, at the local grocer...and we could save money and time! The great thing is you can serve these hot or cold, and, if you prefer, you can make it a wrap...same great flavors, way fewer carbs.

Homemade Italian Subs




Ingredients:
sub buns, lightly toasted
pepperoni
Genoa salami
ham
cheese, use your favorite (we use mozzarella or provolone)
tomato, sliced
onions, sliced
banana peppers
mayonnaise or Miracle Whip
Italian dressing, to drizzle

NOTE - if you prefer a veggie sub swap the meats for sliced mushrooms and green peppers.

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Build subs - layering ham, pepperoni, salami and cheese. Return to oven until cheese melts (watch closely it doesn't take long). 
3. Lightly toast subs until cheese has melted.
4. Add toppings as desired - tomato slices, lettuce shreds, sliced onions, banana peppers.
