EDU: How to make a real Italian sandwich.

So forget that greasy sloppy mess between to pieces of plain bread. This is how you make a sandwich.

First thing is get yourself some real meat, not some pre-packaged shit. For the first one we’ll use some mortadella, provalone, prosciutto and sopresatta. and get good meat and cheese, its not that much more money for a decent brand.

now everything else, some good and fresh european sandwich rolls, some arugula, a tomato, some good oilve oil (i use some homemade oil but you can get pretty good stuff almost anywhere)

Next is chop up your arugula ( I throw the stems out but you can keep them if you like them)

now put in a bowl and toss with some olive oil and throw in some ground black pepper.

now cut up some roasted peppers, buy the fresh ones they have not the ones in the jars.

now toss them with the arugula (cutting them into thin strips works best,

now slice your roll and drizzle some oil on it (dont go to heavy because as soon as you squeeze the sandwich to bite into it all of the juices will squeeze out into the roll so you dont want to over do it now)

next I sliced up a tomato (no pics of that) then put your meat on the bread, If I had gotten bigger rolls I woulda used more meat but this is plenty on a roll this size, add all three meats then top with a slice or two of tomato.

now top with your arugula pepper mix

a few slices of that provalone and throw the lid on that bitch

now stand back and admire your work

I also made another one with smoked mozzarella arugula and tomato for you non meat eating panzies.

Ignore the S&S label I just use this bottle to refill with teh homade stuff

go ahead and fucking hate cause that bitch was delish.

Now thats a sandwich, you have to have all fresh good ingredients or it’s not nearly as good. Good choices on meat also.
good sandwich. a nice touch is after you drizzle olive oil on the inside of the bread, throw it in a fry pan for a minute to warm it up, then build sandwich, then put whole sandwich in pan with a little olive oil on the outside, press down a bit to help get things inside warm.
MMMMM.

also, roma or cherry tomatoes work better, they are less watery. you can subsistute basil for arugula, and dont ever ever EVER let me see stop and shop olive oil in a pic again.

you didnt read the other thread but I just use that bottle because I got a gallon of homemade olive oil and its easier then pouring out of a gallon container, plus it has the drizzel top
12 bucks plus what I had at home, and I got about 4 sandwiches and had enough proscuitto for an egg sandwich in the morning. so about 4 bucks a sandwich I guess.

you make your own?

my grandmother brought back about 5 gallons that her sister in italy made. like I said i just use the old bottle to fill up, thats why that label is so old, I don even think they use that logo anymore.
muffuleta

you should have heated that baby up

now stand back and admire your work

Looks good.
Looks good. And we have the same plates. I have a set in black and a set in white.
