I have a love affair with sandwiches.  For Real.  People used to tell me that I should open up my own sandwich shop.

But I’m more interested in eating sandwiches than making them for the masses.  If I did have a sandwich shop these Hot Italian Sandwiches would definitely be on the menu!

Tips → Tricks → Suggestions →

  • Pre-assemble these sandwiches and then they ready to go into the oven when you need them.
  • Don’t have giardiniera mix? An olive mixture tastes great too!
  • Leave sandwiches uncovered during baking for slightly crisp edges. Or, cover with foil to have soft-baked style sandwiches.
  • Assembling these sandwiches is a great way to put the kids to work!
