SUB SANDWICH INGREDIENTS-
I love that the sub sandwich uses staple kitchen ingredients but you can add or substitute to your personal tastes with the same results.
- BREAD– You can use hoagie rolls or sub rolls from your local bakery or your favorite grocery store. You don’t want to go with something really soft, use bread that is a little more sturdy.
- MEATS– The meats are the most important part of this Italian sub, so stack up on the meats. Here are the meats you will need for this sub:
- Genoa salami
- Turkey, optional
- Pastrami, optional
- CHEESE– Provolone cheese is what this sub calls for but you can use your favorite sliced cheese. If you like a kick to your subs we love using pepper jack cheese!
