Ham and Swiss Submarine

Ham and Swiss SubmarineThere 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'.

Recipe Ingredients:

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
Lettuce leaves
12 ounces shaved ham
6 ounces sliced Wisconsin Swiss or Baby Swiss cheese
1 (3-ounce) package alfalfa sprouts

Cooking Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, combine cream cheese, pecans, green onions and garlic salt; mix well.
  2. Slice rolls in half horizontally; spread both halves with cream cheese mixture.
  3. Top one half of each roll with lettuce, ham, Swiss cheese and sprouts.
  4. Replace top of roll; slice each roll in half diagonally.

Makes 4 servings.

*Hoagie rolls, Italian or French sandwich rolls, etc.
