Italian Sandwich

I like the BMT at Subway, but I thought I could make it better myself.  I was CORRECT, this is better.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

  • ¼ lb.  Genoa salami, sliced thin
  • ¼ lb. pepperoni, sliced
  • ¼ lb. smoked turkey, sliced
  • ¼ lb. sliced provolone cheese
  • Fresh spinach leaves
  • 1 can of black olives, sliced
  • banana peppers, sliced and pickled
  • 2 red onions, sliced thin
  • 1 T. olive oil
  • Balsamic Vinaigrette
  • 1 loaf of French bread
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees
  2. Sauté the onions with olive oil in a skillet on medium-low heat until caramelized about 15 minutes
  3. Cut the French bread in half and generously pour the balsamic vinaigrette on both sides of the bread
  4. Layer the meats on one side starting with the salami then the pepperoni, turkey, and cheese
  5. Place the meats and cheese side of the bread in the oven until the cheese melts, about 5 minutes
  6. On the other side of the bread, place the spinach, black olives, and banana peppers
  7. Remove the bread with the meats from the oven and cover with the smothered onions
  8. Close the halves together and cut into individual servings
Tips and Tricks:
  • You can substitute any meats you like for this sandwich.  It is great combination of flavors.
  • Heating the meats and cheese in the oven is my preference.  It tastes so much better than eating it cold.
  • I make my own balsamic vinaigrette.  You can too!  Click on the link in the ingredients list.
