Yearning to know the secret behind a great homemade sandwich? This video claims they know how. If your growling stomach sounds like a caged animal, you can satiate that ravenous beast without having to scrub a bunch of pots and pans afterwards.
What you will need:
• A crusty hoagie bun
• Sliced cheeses
• Sliced cold cuts
• Thinly sliced cucumber
• Thinly sliced tomato
• Mayonnaise or sandwich dressing
• Romaine lettuce
• An olive
• A frilly toothpick
• Fresh herbs (optional)
• Salsa (optional)
• Guacamole (optional)
Step 1: Slice bun
Slice the bun lengthwise. Dig a trench through the center of both halves with your fingers.
Step 2: Pile on meats and cheeses
Fill the trenches with your choice of fresh meats and cheeses to form a protective moisture barrier to the bread
Step 3: Add cucumber and tomato
Add the cucumber and tomato slices to balance the salty bite of the meat and cheese.
Pack your ingredients separately and construct your sandwich on site if you take your lunch to work or school. This preserves freshness and protects against soggy bread.
Step 4: Drizzle mayo or dressing
Drizzle on the mayo or dressing of your choice. Be gentle – you don't want to turn your sandwich into an oily mess.
Flavor the mayo with fresh herbs, such as basil or oregano, or use salsa or guacamole for a change of pace.
Step 5: Top with lettuce or sprouts
Top your sandwich with romaine lettuce and sprouts for a refreshing crunch.
Step 6: Add bacon and olive
Add crumbled bacon for extra flavor. Spear the olive with the toothpick and stick it through your sandwich to hold it together.
Step 7: Let sandwich rest
Let the sandwich rest for 10 minutes at room temperature to let the flavors meld together. Unless you can't wait – then dig in!
