Sometimes do you want a cooking break? Something fast and easy? Enter the noble sandwich. Sadly abused by weak sandwich bread and a lack of quality meat and condiments, let us elevate it once again to a meal instead of an afterthought.
When I was pregnant, I desperately missed subs. Cold deli meat is not allowed! I went so far as to microwave deli meat to make sandwiches. Fried bologna sandwiches were consumed frequently.
My husband took me to a hot sub place – marvelous! Once again, I could dine on subs. Our baby might be 50 percent sub. In order to preserve our budget I improvised these imitation versions.
