The Perfect Italian Sub
I am not Italian, but the Italian sub is my favorite sandwich. I have spent years perfecting the recipe for the absolute best Italian sub in existence. For the perfect Italian sub sandwich, it is all about the order of the ingredients. Because the sandwich contains so many ingredients, if the items are not placed in the Italian sub roll correctly, the bread becomes soggy. A soggy sandwich is not a good.
Salami (three slices)
Prosciutto (three slices)
Regular ham (three sliced)
½ cup of Italian sausage sliced (optional)
¼ cup of shredded lettuce
¼ cup diced tomatoes
¼ cup of sliced onions
¼ cup of black olives
¼ cup of banana peppers
1/8 cup of jalapenos or sweet peppers (your call)
1/8 cup of roasted pepper slices(optional)
Salt and pepper (optional)
Oil and vinegar (optional)
12 inch Italian whole-wheat roll
Ultimately, which ingredients you use is your call. I use everything listed above for the optimal taste explosion. All of these components make for one every large sub. I usually cut it in two and make two meals out of it.
Put the mayonnaise on both sides of the bread, and then put the cheese down against the bread. The cheese and mayonnaise combination first, will keep the bread from getting soggy as they act as a seal.
Next add all the veggies, peppers, and olives. And then add your oil and vinegar over the top of those ingredients. Then apply the salt and pepper. Lastly, place your meat on top. The meat on top seals the sandwich from the top down. This creates a non-soggy perfect Italian sub. Enjoy your masterpiece with a side of sea salt potato chips and a large sweet tea!!
