Italian Sub With Tasty Banana Peppers & Olives

Serving suggestion time: cheese crackers had my vote but it's hard not to eye that packed sub. 
Who doesn't love a good Italian sub made to order? However, there was no ordering here. True that I could of gone to the 5 different Subways located within a 5 mile radius to my home but when I can make one at home that's better then you can bet I'm staying in. As delicious as this was and as easy as it was to make, I had no trouble doing that.

  • Albertson's French Bread
  • Salami (try and find good quality salami because it goes a long way in the taste dept.)
  • Provolone Cheese
  • Mezzetta Banana Wax Peppers (found in a jar)
  • Sliced Black Olives
  • Italian Dressing

If you have an Albertson's grocery story nearby, then I suggest that you use their French bread. For some reason, it's rare to find good French bread in a chain grocery store and not have to go to a speciality bread shop but Albertson's is that one exception.

Just look at them, they are just begging to go on a sandwich.
I just love a good banana pepper and the reason I mention it, is because it's a very important ingredient for a good Italian sub. Without them, the Italian sub will be without a great deal of zest to give it the flavor it needs. One is all it takes for this particular sandwich.

Another important step in the Italian sub making task, is after you put all your ingredients together on the sub to your liking; pop it in the toaster oven for about 2 to 3 minutes for that nice and toasty effect.

There you have it, great French bread with a little Italian dressing, spicy but not too spicy banana peppers, quality salami, with black olives for taste is all you need to do a quality Italian sub at home. I don't know you feel about them but Italian subs just have a certain taste associated with them that keeps me coming back to them. I hope I've shown you that you don't need to go out and order one to enjoy this always satisfying sub.
