Italian Hoagie

IMG_5884I 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!

Ingredients:

  • 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

Directions:

  1. Pre-heat the oven to 300
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Remove from the oven and cut into 4 pieces.
