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.
You can see from my Instagram photo that these are pretty similar to the original. Regardless, 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!
