Wow! This recipe exceeded my expectations! We loved it! Per previous reviewers I too used a food processor to quicken the process and added a little extra mayo and a TBLS of red wine vinegar. Yum yum! Will be making for many parties and events to come! Read More

I made this exactly as the recipe stated and took it to a huge SuperBowl party with lots of college-aged folks and people did not like it. I came home with 95%. Will not be making this again. Read More

Amazing dip. I tried it out on my Philadelphia family (Philly if you dont know is the home of the Italian Hoagie) We all agreed it really does taste like a real hoagie. I added more mayo and also added red wine vinegar at the end and I would say it takes much more prep time that 15 min but boy was it worth it. It also keeps for a few days so serve over a long weekend at the Jersey Shore! Read More

Growing up north of philly there are 3 things I know from birth real cheese steaks stromboli's and Hoagie's. I must say this totally hit the mark. I did add some vinegar to the mixture as any hoagie I've ever had contained it. It was terrific!. I did scale this down to 4 servings and it made about 2 1/2 cups of dip even then. I chopped all the meat and cheese up rather than tore it was faster and more uniform. I will be making this again. Read More

I looove Italian hoagies so this is right up my alley. I go the Strip District (Pittsburgh thing) and get quality meats and cheeses: ham spicy capicola salami pepperoni and provolone. For the dressing: 1 cup mayonnaise 1/4 cup sour cream 1 T red wine vinegar 2 T Italian Dressing 2 t dried oregano. I like it cooked but that's how I like my hoagies. In which case I serve the onions hot pepper rings lettuce and tomato on the side. I serve with lighly toasted french bread rounds. Also my friends call this "deconstructed hoagie." I think it's an accurate description! Read More

I cut this recipe in half because it just seemed like it would make too much. I am sooo glad I did. The dip is great but we would never have been able to finish all the dip otherwise. Thanks for the recipe I know it will be used again. Read More

I have had this before and i was always asking for the recipe and no one wanted to give it up! Now i have it!!! This is great! I added blended olive oil and a little balsamic vinegar. I think next time i will leave them both out. It didn't really make that big of a difference. This was great! Also I ommit the onion. I don't like onion on my hoagie therefore i left it out.

I made this for New Year's Eve with a few tablespoons of red wine vinegar and it was terrific! It was a huge hit - over 30 people gave it a thumbs up! My brother-in-law told me I needed to make this for every gathering. Read More

I have a card group in my home on occasion and served it. It was a BIG hit. My daughter took the leftovers to school with her and took a baggie of hoagie bread slices. My family loved it. I used sliced American cheese and stacked it up to slice. I also use home grown tomatoes. I will make this alot more in the future. Read More
