A submarine sandwich is basically composed of long or oblong bread split lengthwise and stuffed with meats, cheeses, veggies and spreads.
There s no correct way to make one and the fillings are all up to you! The following list is composed of essential ingredients, how to choose and prepare them for your sandwich and the other half are some great variations and recipes of the Submarine Sandwich.
10. Fresh Bread
Visit your local bread bakery and buy the freshest bread possible. Choose a loaf that’s sturdy enough to hold all your ingredients together without it been too “doughy”. You really want your submarine sandwich to showcase all your ingredients.
Charcuterie is just a fancy word for preserved meats. Some examples of preserving meats are smoking, salting, curing and brining. This can be seen in hams, bacons, sausages and other meats. Why not make your submarine sandwich extra special with a choice of meats that don’t include the old Bologna?
A variety of cheeses will make you submarine sandwich interesting and bring new life to it. Who said sandwiches should only have deli-sliced cheeses? Slice thick chunks of cheese and arrange neatly on your sandwich for your eating pleasure!
Instead of your old friends ketchup, mustard and mayonnaise spread your fresh bread with a delicious Red Onion Compote! The sweetness of the onions will balance and perfectly pair with most cheeses, as well as impart a rounded, earthy flavor. Also, check out the varieties of whole grain mustards available.
6. Bahn Mi (Asian Sub)
An eclectic submarine inspired by Asian flavors: fresh cilantro, crunchy daikon and carrots and marinated chicken all come together to form a delicious take on the traditional sandwich.
5. Mamma Mia!
An unusual take on subs is this Italian one. Slice a foccacia lengthwise (yes, it will be thinner than expected). Spread your condiments, preferably roasted red peppers and good olive oil and top with juicy slices of Mozzarella, Prosciutto and a grating of fresh Parmesan. Press and enjoy!
A colorful Mexican sub is a slightly adaptation to the classic cold cuts. Add pinto de gallo, caramelized onions, grated cheese and Cotija cheese for a little Spanish flair. Look for Latin cold cuts and round out the meal with a cold glass of Horchata.
3. Oh La La!
A French version on crusty baguette! Use high quality whole grain mustard as your spread and layer with French Cheeses and Charcuterie. Even throw in some slices of pate! Serve with a glass of French wine.
2. Peruvian favorite: Sandwich de Jamon del Pais
Gently simmered pork butt, layer with onion relish, chilies and a squeeze of lime makes this sandwich variation a Peruvian delight!
1. The Mitraillette
Sometimes all you crave is a carb-overload and with these healthy, but gravy drenched sweet potato slices, you’ll eat your way into carb-heaven! Add a few sausage pieces and you’ll have a complete meal!
