Philadelphia Hoagie Sandwich
When Chef H was in the eighth grade he worked at Tunnison's Market in suburban Philadelphia and made these sandwichies on a regular basis for customers. Hope you enjoy.
1 8 to 10 inch long Italian or French roll
4 slices provolone cheese
4 slices ham
4 slices Genoa Salami -(not hard salami)
4 slices large pepperoni
4-5 slices of tomato
Several strips of Roasted red peppers from a jar.
Several banana peppers sliced
Salt, Pepper and dried oregano for taste
Cut the roll length-wise. Start with the cheese first and then add all the meat, a slice at a time, layering as you go, starting with the ham, then salami, then pepperoni. Add the peppers, lettuce, and tomato slices.
Drizzle the olive oil over the lettuce and tomatoes and season with salt, pepper and oregano.
Fold everything into the sandwich. The ham slices are usually the largest and you can use them to make a neat wrap inside the bread. Slice according to size desired and secure with toothpicks. Wrap in wax paper and you have a great picnic sandwich. These sandwiches keep well and even better several hours after being made as long as they are kept cool.
