Hot Grinder Sandwich

Hot Grinder SandwichGrinder, 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.

Recipe Ingredients:

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

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 325°F (160°C).
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Makes 4 servings.
