Hot Grinder Sandwich
Grinder, hoagie, and submarine—are various names for this two-fisted sandwich. Young chefs can help put the sandwich together. This grinder needs only chips and a piece of fruit to make it a meal.
1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into rings
1 garlic clove, crushed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried minced onion
1/2 pound thinly sliced ham
1 medium tomato, thinly sliced
1 (14-ounce) loaf French bread, split lengthwise
4 ounces thinly sliced Provolone
- Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
- In medium skillet over medium-high heat; sauté green pepper and garlic in oil until pepper is crisp-tender, about 4 minutes. Toss in dried onion. Remove green pepper, reserving oil mixture in skillet.
- Layer ham, tomatoes and green pepper on bottom half of bread. Drizzle oil mixture over top, sprinkle with oregano; top with cheese slices. Cover with top of bread. Wrap loaf in foil; bake for 15 minutes. Remove from foil; slice to serve.
