I love a good sandwich. I came from the east coast where we take our sandwiches very seriously and you can find multiple sandwich/sub shops (Subway does not count!) within a 1/2 mile radios of Main Street. I have found that the west coast is not as fond of their sub shops as the east. It might be hard to find a good sandwich shop but it is even more difficult to find one that can make the ultimate Italian Hoagie. There is a hidden gem in Park City however, called Back Door Deli and boy can they make a sandwich! Their menu has over 50 options and I am usually a little overwhelmed by all the choices so I stick to what I know best… the Italian! A few weeks ago on a Sunday afternoon I was craving one of their delicious Italians, but alas! Back Door Deli was closed. So I decided to do a little remake on one of my favorite sandwiches at home and now I am hooked on making them in my kitchen and you will be too. Enjoy!
- 1 large loaf soft Italian bread
- 1/2 lb. black forest ham
- 1/4 lb. Genoa salami
- 1/4 lb. capicola or another type of salami
- 1/4 lb. (about 8 slices) provolone cheese
- sliced roasted red peppers
- sliced green pepperoncini
- olive oil
- salt and pepper
- Pre-heat the oven to 300
- Meanwhile, split the bread lengthwise, then pull out some of the bread from the inside. Drizzle 2 tablespoons olive oil on the bottom half. Season with salt and pepper.
- Place one layer of ham, Genoa salami, capicola and provolone on the bottom half of the bread. Repeat again with another later of meat and cheese.
- Drizzle the top half with 1 tablespoon of olive oil and place the sandwich open faced into the oven for 5-8 minutes until the cheese melts and the bread is toasted.
- Remove from the oven and cut into 4 pieces.
