Lots of people love Subway sandwiches. They're delicious, and you can put anything on them that you like. They're perfect for either a lunchtime meal, a picnic or a quick weeknight dinner. However, instead of driving to the restaurant and spending money on sandwiches made by someone else, you can easily build your own.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Loaf of refrigerated French bread dough
  • Butter, melted
  • Herbs
  • Lunchmeat
  • Cheese
  • Vegetables
  • Condiments

  1. 1

    Make a foot-long sandwich roll. Remove the refrigerated dough from its packaging and place it on a baking tray. Brush with melted butter. Add a light sprinkling of herbs if you like your sandwiches to have some zest to them. Bake until the bread is a nice golden brown colour and allow it to cool completely.

  2. 2

    Cut the sandwich roll. To do this the way they do at Subway, make a V-shaped incision along the top, removing a wedge-shaped portion of the bread.

  3. 3

    Place your favourite meat toppings on the open bread. Use pepperoni, ham, turkey, pastrami or even meatballs.

  4. 4

    Add a layer of cheese. Choose from provolone, American, cheddar or muenster.

  5. 5

    Layer vegetables on top of the cheese. Slice up some pickles, green peppers, onions, lettuce, tomato and hot peppers.

  6. 6

    Add condiments last. Use your choice of mustard, mayonnaise, oil, vinegar or Italian dressing. Top it off with a bit of salt and pepper. Close the sandwich, cut it in half, and serve. If you like, add a helping of chips and a soft drink.

Tips and warnings

  • If you don't have time to bake your own sandwich rolls, buy a prepackaged selection.
  • If you're going to warm up your sandwich, do it after you've added the meat and cheese, but before you add the vegetables and condiments.
