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!
