Good stuff today. I was thinking of this monster sub sandwich we had at the game last SuperBowl and will probably be having again this year where we're going. This thing looked like it was about 6 feet long and about 10-inches wide. It was tasty but I had to cut mine into pieces and I'm quite sure there were enough leftovers for the whole week. It just got me thinkin' about these BAKED ITALIAN SUBS which are much more do-able and there's something about how the flavors all come together when you heat them.
Coupled with the melted cheese it's a real pleaser and we all looked forward to them when Mom used to make them. Nothing beats a hot sandwich and a cup of soup. (Stick around Friday I'll send you some super hot sliders recipes with deli meat, Hawaiian rolls and cheese another awesome game-day treat... Rachael has brought these to the office many times and always ends up an empty plate of crumbs!)

BAKED ITALIAN SUBS
Six 6- to-8-inch hero (hoagie) rolls, split
1/2 cup Italian dressing
1/2 pound sliced deli salami
1/2 pound sliced deli turkey
1/2 pound sliced deli ham
1/2 pound sliced deli provolone cheese
1 large tomato, thinly sliced
1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Brush the cut sides of the rolls with the Italian dressing. Layer the bottom halves with the salami, turkey, ham, cheese, tomato, and onion and replace the tops. Place each on a piece of aluminum foil and wrap tightly. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, or until the cheese is melted. Carefully remove the aluminum foil and serve.

CHECK OUT THESE SANDWICH TIPS...
FREEZING? Yep, fresh is better of course but any kind
of bread can be frozen, as bread or as sandwiches. Many
people like to make lots of sandwiches and freeze them
individually. Salad vegetables such as lettuce, tomato,
and cucumber do not freeze well. Suitable fillings to
* egg (grate or chop finely and mix with a little
mayonnaise or yoghurt) - this is an excellent filling
to freeze as the sandwich will defrost by lunchtime and
you won't have the smell of an egg sandwich until it
* lean ham, beef, chicken or turkey all freeze well and
you can happily add mustard or pickles.
* cheese freezes well - add sliced celery, chutney or
pickles, if desired.
* cream cheese (or light cream cheese) can also be frozen.
Add chopped walnuts or almonds, dried apricots or other
dried fruits, plus finely sliced ginger, if desired.
* Even peanut butter can be frozen.
