Italian Club Sandwich
This Italian Club Sandwich is so much better than your average sandwich, with a delicious combination of Italian meats, pepperoncinis, and more. It’s great for lunch or a picnic!
I was never one to get excited about sandwiches until I ate at Parm in NYC and tasted their Italian Club. I was used to the average PB&J or turkey mayo sandwiches of my childhood, but this was a sandwich on a totally different level.
I went on to taste all of the sandwiches on their menu, including meatball parms and this Eggplant Parmesan Sandwich that I also recreated for the blog, but admittedly those take a bit more work than the club sandwich I’m sharing here.
If you’ve got 5 minutes, you have time to make this sandwich. It’s so easy, yet so good.
Even though Parm’s version is excellent, I can’t be buying $16 sandwiches all the time, so I eventually started recreating them myself. They’re very delicious, and much more affordable.
How to Make an Italian Club Sandwich:
To start, get a good hoagie roll from a bakery or the grocery store, and spread one side with mayonnaise:
If you have 10 minutes to spare, I recommend using homemade mayonnaise for the best flavor.
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:
Iceberg’s crisp, watery crunch makes it the best lettuce choice here.
Add thinly sliced fresh tomatoes and sliced pepperoncinis:
Add a little salt and pepper on top, then put on the top piece of bread:
Slice it in half, then devour!
This Eggplant Parmesan Sandwich is also one of my favorites that I recreated from Parm in NYC. I also love these Italian Sausage Stuffed Zucchini Boats and Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops. Enjoy!

Were can I find black forest hum?
The final product picture looks so tasty, especially how the ham, salami, and other elements are layered and the fluffiness of the hoagie roll. My husband loves to eat fresh, Italian sandwiches and is so happy whenever they’re on the menu for dinner. I might take us out to a restaurant to eat some for his birthday on Friday.
We call this sandwich a “Hoagie” in Philadelphia Pa.
Perfect , only thing to add is Onion
That sounds great!
Gosh, do I love avocado. And gosh, do I wish I had a plate full of these sammies sitting in front of me right now. These are so gorgeous and they look delicious!
Loved the combo of flavors. This one’s a keeper.
My husband loved it. Didn’t change the receipe.
My favorite kind of sandwich-looks delish. I always add mortadella as well.
There’s almost nothing better than a good sandwich…except maybe a cookie. 😉 So glad you live in NYC and can recreate and share all of the yummies you have!
Yum! It’s the simple things in life 🙂
Our most favorite sandwich of all time, perfect for all occasions,
That’s awesome. It’s a great sandwich!
DROOL WORTHY! The only thing I would add would be a drizzle of olive oil on the lettuce layer and some basil on the tomatoes.
I love those ideas!!
