The Hot Italian Deli Sandwich

IMG_0986Try my take on this classic sandwich!  It’s fresh, spicy, crispy, and gooey all at once!

A sandwich is quite simply my favorite form of food.  I truly believe that there is an art to sandwich making.  Sandwiches at home do not have to be boring.  I like to shop for in the deli and bakery section for my sandwich ingredients.  It is so much cheaper and the quality is better!  I like to grab deli meat and cheese by the slice and I also like to grab fresh made sandwich rolls for $0.25 each from the store’s bakery.  The recipe I’m sharing today is for two 6 inch sandwiches and only cost about $5 to make.  If you were to order 2 of these at a restaurant they would be at least $5 a piece!



-fresh basil leaves

– 2 slices provolone

-6 slices pepperoni

-6 slices Genoa salami

-4 slices prosciutto

-mayo (made with olive oil is my preference)

-2, 6 inch sandwich rolls (white or wheat)



Preheat the oven to 375° F.

Cut rolls into halves.

Spread mayo on the inside of each half of bread.

Place 5-6 basil leaves on one half, then a slice of provolone.

On the other half, place 3 slices pepperoni, 3 slices salami, and 2 slices of prosciutto.


Place the sandwich halves open faced on a cookie sheet and let bake in the oven for approx. 6-8 minutes.  When cheese is fully melted and the edges of the bread are golden, it’s done!
