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
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.
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.
Place your favourite meat toppings on the open bread. Use pepperoni, ham, turkey, pastrami or even meatballs.
Add a layer of cheese. Choose from provolone, American, cheddar or muenster.
Layer vegetables on top of the cheese. Slice up some pickles, green peppers, onions, lettuce, tomato and hot peppers.
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.
