Blogging Marathon# 50: Week 1/ Day 1

Theme: American Sandwiches

Dish: Hoagie Sandwich

We are starting a brand new edition of blogging marathon today and my theme for this week is ‘American Sandwiches’. Didn’t realize that there are around 70-80 different types of sandwiches in the US until I saw the list of sandwiches on Wiki that Valli shared with us. More than 90% of these are meat based, so after carefully looking through all my options, I picked 3 sandwiches that were vegetarian and those we knew I would be making again and again. 

For the first day, I made Hoagie sandwich. This is a kind of submarine sandwich and has quite a few different names like a sub, wedge, hoagie, hero, grinder etc. it is interesting to know that there are about 13 different names for this very sandwich in US. A submarine sandwich basically consists of a long roll of Italian or French bread that is split width wise either into two pieces or opened in a “V” on one side, and filled with a variety of meats, cheeses, vegetables, seasonings, and sauces.

I was first introduced to hoagie sandwich at the deli I worked during my Masters. The owner was really nice and she would make me a hoagie sandwich with all the veggies she had in the kitchen — it wasn’t even on her menu, but she still made for me. I never saw a vegetarian hoagie sandwich on any restaurant menu till now and so it’s been quite a long time that I had this sandwich.

I found the recipe for Italian veggie hoagie sandwich here and followed it to the ‘T’. I smeared some roasted garlic mayonnaise on the bread before filling it with the veggies and it was a super hit at home. Both my husband and I loved this sandwich. I made my own hoagie rolls, but good quality Italian or French bread can also be used.
