Ham and Swiss Submarine
There is no mystery as to why this sandwich is called a "submarine" (or sub), the why is because it's made on a roll shaped like a submarine. It's a regional thing—this same sandwich is also called a 'hoagie' and a 'hero'.
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
2 submarine rolls*, 12 inches in length
12 ounces shaved ham
6 ounces sliced Wisconsin Swiss or Baby Swiss cheese
1 (3-ounce) package alfalfa sprouts
- In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, pecans, green onions and garlic salt; mix well.
- Slice rolls in half horizontally; spread both halves with cream cheese mixture.
- Top one half of each roll with lettuce, ham, Swiss cheese and sprouts.
- Replace top of roll; slice each roll in half diagonally.
Makes 4 servings.
*Hoagie rolls, Italian or French sandwich rolls, etc.
