Two classic sandwiches, one epic recipe. I opted for Chicago style, with peppers, giardiniera and all the frills of a cravable Italian sub.
Serves: 4
  • 4 Hoagie Rolls, cut almost in half
  • 8 tbsp. Mayonnaise
  • 1 tsp. Dry Italian Seasoning, or more to taste
  • 8 Chicago Sport Peppers, chopped
  • 16 oz. Italian Giardiniera, chopped
  • 8 oz. Genoa Salami
  • 8 oz. Pepperoni
  • 8 oz. Sliced Applewood Ham
  • 24 Simek's Italian Style Meatballs, cooked
  • 1 tbsp. Celery Seeds
  • 12 Slices Provolone Cheese
  • Butter, as needed
  1. Preheat oven to 350F.
  2. Mix mayonnaise and dry Italian seasoning together. Spread on both interior sides of the hoagie rolls.
  3. Layer with sports peppers, giardiniera, salami, pepperoni, ham, Italian meatballs, a sprinkle of celery seeds and top with provolone cheese.
  4. Place in a buttered baking dish, with the open side facing up, and bake for 10 - 15 minutes (or until cheese has melted and bread is toasty). Enjoy immediately.
