Recipe: Hero Sandwich w/Variations

Depending on where you live, you may call it a hero, hoagie, submarine, or grinder. Make it in individual 6-inch rolls as below, in loaves of French bread cut in 4-inch wedges, or heroically, for a party in a special 2-foot long loaf----increasing amounts of filling proportionately.

Makes 1 sandwich

6-inch French roll
4 T butter
¼ C mayonnaise
2-½ T prepared mustard
4 slices cheese: Cheddar, Swiss, Fontina, or others
4 slices salami, bologna, mortadella, ham, or other cooked meat
Tomato slices
Onion rings
Pickle slices
Shredded lettuce

Split the roll lengthwise. Butter each half and spread with mayonnaise and mustard. Place the cheese and meat, overlapping, along the length. Add any of the remaining ingredients you like: the more, the better. If you want to serve it warm, omit the lettuce and tomato, wrap snugly in foil, and cook in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes.

Mexican Hero Sandwich

Add 2-½ T chopped, canned green chili to 6 oz softened butter. Omit the mustard and mayonnaise. Spread chili butter on the loaf, and use salami and Monterey Jack cheese. Wrap in foil and heat in a 350°F oven for 30 minutes.

Italian Hero Sandwich

Omit the mustard. Use sliced prosciutto ham and Genoa salami and Fontina, Romano, or Parmesan cheese. Top with onion and green pepper slices and olive relish. Serve cold.
