Cook up a pan of Italian sausages and layer them in hoagie rolls with hot peppers, onions, and cheese for a hearty and satisfying meal.
Roasted Pork Banh Mi (Vietnamese Sandwich)
I'll never forget my first real bánh mì. I remember thinking to myself, this isn't just one of the best sandwiches I've ever had to eat, but one of the best things, period. Not only do we get amazing contrasts in flavor and texture, but also the temperature difference between the crisp, warm, meat-filled roll, and cool, crunchy vegetables makes this so much fun to eat.
Italian Subs - Restaurant Style
This is a classic Italian sub sandwich with three kinds of meat and provolone cheese. The kind you get in a mom and pop pizza joint. You'll be glad you tried it!
Roast Beef Subs with Balsamic Onions and Brie Cheese
This recipe was originally an appetizer I offered in a downtown Boston bistro, but when I saw the mass appeal for it, I quickly remade it as a main dish. It remains one of my most popular sandwich dishes to this day. It is surprisingly simple and quick to make.
Catfish Po Boy
Crispy fried catfish is piled into hoagie rolls and topped with tangy coleslaw for this authentic Po Boy sandwich.
My Italian family loves this recipe! A crusty loaf of Italian bread is cut in half, and layered with olives, and various meats and cheeses.
Toasted Cuban Sandwich
This Cuban sandwich is piled high with ham, roast pork loin, Swiss cheese, and dill pickles, then toasted to warm and crunchy perfection.
Meatball grinders are perfect for game day. Tender meatballs are simmered in marinara sauce, then loaded into hoagie rolls and topped with mozzarella cheese.
Real N'awlins Muffuletta
These gigantic sandwiches were invented a century ago at Sicilian Deli here in New Orleans. The spicy, tangy olive salad is what really sets this meat and cheese sandwich apart. A genuine muffuletta should be made on oven-fresh Italian bread topped with sesame seeds. Be sure and use the highest-quality ingredients available; it really makes a difference! Since you're going to all the trouble of making the olive salad, consider doubling the recipe so you'll have some extra waiting around for when you get another muffuletta craving -- it keeps for at least a month! Note: Use round bread loaves for real muffuletta.
Festival-Style Grilled Italian Sausage Sandwiches
These delicious grilled sausage sandwiches are my attempt to duplicate the ones I ate when I was growing up and attended Italian street festivals in the North End of Boston. They come together really quickly, and make a great summer lunch. Choose hot or mild sausages as you prefer.
