I saw a guy at the airport enjoying an airport steak sandwich in Charlotte. I laughed at his steak sandwich of
inferior meat, cheese and beef while secretly craving the sandwich for myself.

Much as I like an occasional steak sandwich, they are not even close to being my favorite.

For that we have to go to that Flagship of Italian Sandwiches...

The Italian Hoagie!!!

1) mortadella
2) Genoa salami
3) Hot Capicolla ("Gabagool")
4) Prosciutto ("Brazoot")
5) Sliced yellow onion
6) Italian style hot peppers (NOT "pepperoncini"... ugh!)

Put all of this into a hoagie roll (hard crust, soft interior), lightly sprinkle a SMALL amount of black pepper, a good amount (but not too much) oregano, oil & vinegar to suit your preference (it is a MORTAL SIN to put Mayonaisse on this Sandwich of All Sandwiches!), and start eating!!

Oooops... forgot something.
3 or 4 slices of "sandwich" (mild) provolone.
Lettuce.
Tomato.

There you go! Heaven for Lunch (or dinner, or a snack - which is why most Italians are a bit .... pudgy).

(Adjust as needed for the fact that the word "hoagie" is unknown outside eastern Pennsylvania and southern New Jersey.)

(Go ahead, incite the flame war over what a large sandwich is properly called...)

"Hoagie" is quite well known in Boulder CO (at least it was back in 1991, last time I was there), and also in northern California.

I've bought hoagies in Manhattan (NYC) and Brooklyn (another planet), Washington DC (another galaxy, far far away). A friend tells me they have "hoagies" in Lafayette Louisiana.

So it appears the moniker is much more than just a Philly/Jersey thing.

Local place sells a "hot hoagie":

"Hoagies are served on a Freshly Baked French Bun, grilled with garlic butter. Add to that mayo, Italian dressing, lettuce, tomatoes, onions and your choice of meat and melted cheese. Served with chips."

They will let you double down on the meat as well.  Healthy it is not.  Thank god they wrap it in wax paper, as the black puddle it leaves if you don't eat it fast enough is disturbing, and you would not want it to stain anything it was set on.

Plus the "ya get chips with that".  I liked them (probably a bit too much), but I can't eat that stuff anymore.

Vince,

That cannot be correct. It would be a po'boy in Louisiana.

They were always "subs" here. "Subsanwich"(sic) /"sub sandwich" was acceptable. Saying the long drawn out
"Submarine Sandwich" would get you weird looks but acceptable also. We had a sub shop that only served subs so
"Let's go to Milt's" was understood.

This town just had a Jimmy John's open up. It is sad how everything is turning into a major chain. The thing
about Jimmy John's is they emphasize the speed of their service... but not quality. I think that "free smells"
sign is stupid. I know people that work near the Jimmy John's location, have tried it, and they say it is
acceptable. Not great but acceptable, another place to choose in that area. There are a few unique items they
like, one person likes Jimmy John's lettuce wrap "sandwiches", no bread, the food is wrapped in a piece of
iceberg lettuce. Not a bad idea I suppose for those on low carb diets. It is like stuffed cabbage.

You never never never EVER use "melted" cheese on a hoagie.
And you never use "french" rolls either. If you cannot find a genuine Italian hard-crust roll, you can make the sandwich with a French roll, since they are the right size and usually have at least a semblance of a crispy (but not hard) crust. But it is only an approximation - "close enough for government work" - but not authentic Italian.

"Italian dressing"?? In my family the ONLY dressing (for salads and hoagies alike) is oil & vinegar. Since that is, in many restaurants, considered a dressing (and it is certainly Italian [and Greek]) I suppose that "Italian dressing" is "ok" - but not the nonsense sold in bottles. Make that yourself by dripping a bit of olive oil over the innards of the sandwich and then red wine vinegar to taste. Forget the "crap in a bottle." It is not authentic; more important, it does not taste good - ruins the hoagie.

And I'm Italian - both sides of the family tree - all the way to "the boat."

Been to Lafayette (LA). They have hoagies there.
I do believe the "po'boy" comes close, but it is a dressing thing. Not a hoagie.

Hmmmmm, here they always ask "Oil and vinegar?" never "Italian dressing?"

I've tested hot for "military-grade explosives" three of the last 4 times i've been through security.
The last time I went through I had an ankle bracelet on. Did mention something about it being illegal to have sex with goats when the agent inquired about the device.

When I flew the last time I asked for a pat down instead of the machine. The TSA whined, and asked me why I
didn't want to do it.

I've spent a good amount of time in Louisiana. If they're calling it a hoagie.. Don't eat there.

How to make the perfect sandwich:

1) Get your favorite kind of bread or roll.
2) Get your favorite meats.
3) Get your favorite cheeses.
4) Get your favorite veggies.
5) Get your favorite condiments.
6) Assemble it anyway you want.
7) Enjoy.

That must be some sort of weird local custom where you are. Around here it is *imperative* to use ingredients that you don't like.

Yeah, that "custom" is called FREEDOM, you people from 150 miles of NY city and its communist region don't

Some of us in and/or from that region understand it far more than *you* will ever know.

There's a big culture mismatch. But they're trying to fix it. The wrong way.
