One of the things I still miss living here in Iowa, is a good Italian Sub Sandwich! There are no Italian delis here in Cedar Rapids. The grocery store has a good selection of meats behind the counter, but the Italian meats are pre-packaged. Yes, you read correctly, I purchased cured meat in a package.

That is something that I do not ordinarily do, but like I said, I don’t really have a choice. I have tried to remember everything that used to come on the sandwiches that we would take to the beach, or on picnics.

This is one of my all time favorite sandwiches, and during the holidays it’s nice to have a meal that can be made in 10 minutes or less. Okay it’s always nice to have a meal that you can put together really fast. For my 16th birthday, we had a 6 foot sandwich for my party. There is something for everyone in this sandwich.

If you do not like peppers, then simply leave them off. Alex likes spicy foods, so his has spicy mustard and hot waxed peppers. Mine has neither of those items! I still have not perfected sub sandwich rolls, so these rolls are store bought. Let’s just say that it is in keeping with the super fast theme.

How to make an Italian Sub Sandwich:

Whenever I am starting with a really thick bread, I like to squish down the center of both sides of the roll to make a cavity, or you could scoop out the excess bread from the center of your roll.
