Tasty Tuesday – November 4, 2007

In July, I posted a recipe for a delicious summer sandwich. Now that the weather’s getting colder, I’m trying out hot sandwich recipes, and last night I made a winner: Italian hoagies.

It seems funny to talk about a sandwich recipe, since sandwiches are, by definition, things you just sort of throw together. But you need to know the ingredients, right? So here’s what I put into my yummy creations, and how I assembled them.

You start with good Hoagie buns. I bought Sarah Lee. Mmmm… they had sesame seeds on them. Separate the top of the bun from the bottom.

Slather a bit of mayo on the bottom. This isn’t really necessary, but I can’t think of many sandwiches that couldn’t be improved by mayo, so I used it. You could even try a bit of Italian dressing for a tangier kick.

Now stack on thin slices of: Ham, salami and pepperoni. Stack it as high as you like.

On top of the meat, lay down some thin onion slices and banana peppers, if you like those things.

Lay down a couple slices of provolone cheese, and sprinkle with a bit of Italian seasoning (basically, basil and oregano).

On the top portion of your bun, slather some ready-made spaghetti sauce. This is a really handy way to use up the leftovers from last night’s pasta meal.

Put the top on your sandwich, then stick it in the oven at 300 degrees until the cheese melts and the bread gets all toasty.

    This is not spam. We are a team of eight students from Boston University’s School of Management who are in a product development class. The product that we are creating is a doll that teaches sun safety to young girls by having its skin on the arms and legs turn red when exposed to UV light (sunlight). We need a lot of assistance in getting feedback from mothers about our product.

    We are desperately looking for mother’s with daughters under the age of 15 to take our survey. If you could take the survey in the link below it would be of great help to our project. It takes less than five minutes. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!

    The link to our survey is: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.aspx?sm=Mw5v6V3Hvfh3s7AzrJ5n0g_3d_3d

    Thank you very much. We appreciate your help.
