I like a sandwich every now and then, but generally they aren’t anything I get excited about. Normally they’re pretty simple concoctions, with minimal ingredients such as turkey, lettuce, tomato, and maybe a little mayo and mustard. Eh, right? They’re good, but usually nothing to scream and shout about.

NOT THIS SANDWICH! This right here may be the sandwich of my dreams.

A local shopkeeper was recently telling me about a legendary sandwich from a place called Parma in NYC, so I added it to my restaurant list and went for the first time a couple weeks ago. And…OH. MY. GOODNESS. They have glorious sandwiches. Sandwiches to get very excited about.

The first time I went I tried a meatball parm sandwich, and then the next time I had this beautiful Italian Club right here, our muse for today’s post:

It was so good that I had to go to the grocery store the next day and try to recreate my own version (because even though their sandwich is delicious, it’s $16 and I can’t be buying that all the time).

Now, I have no idea what exactly is in Parm’s Italian Club sandwich because they don’t list the ingredients online and I didn’t take the sandwich apart to figure it out, but an approximation was good enough for me. Lots of high quality Italian meats on a good roll with a few helping ingredients make for a good sandwich. Let me show you what’s in my Italian Club.

To start, get a good hoagie roll from a bakery or the grocery store, and spread one side with mayonnaise:

Next layer on thinly sliced soppressata:

Next up, genoa salami:

And then, thinly sliced black forest ham, layered on in folds:

And then! Prosciutto di parma:

But wait there’s more! Provolone or meunster cheese, and thinly sliced iceberg lettuce:

Then thinly sliced fresh tomatoes:
