These Hot Italian Subs are now a go-to meal at my house. Meaty, cheesy, and full of flavor thanks to a buttered and seasoned bun, it’s also easy to customize for different tastes.
Subs are one of those things where like, how could you go wrong? Bread, cheese, meat, done. But in my extensive sub connoisseur experience, it can be completely out of this world, or essentially a warmed up sandwich. A warm sandwich does not a sub make, my friends. A while ago I was Pinteresting (yep, that’s a verb now!) looking for a really fantastic, next-level sub. And I found it in Wonky Wonderful’s Hot Italian Subs The secret here is the buttered and seasoned bread. And unlike in a restaurant, you control exactly how toasty you get these bad boys.
Subs ingredient list is simple: turkey, salami, pepperoni, cheese, butter, Italian seasoning and sub buns.
Feel free to drop in some grown-up sub fillers like olives, peppers, the sky’s the limit on this one. I’d like to say the kids are picky eaters at my house, but it’s actually me, I’m the problem.
First up, melt your butter, spread it on your both sides of your buns and sprinkle on some Italian seasoning. This is the step that takes these subs to the next level. A little butter and seasoning, but this is it, folks.
Next, fill up the sandwich with your choice of fixin’s. I like to get crazy with the cheese, so I saved that for last.
Layer it in your dish, seam side down.
Get wild with some shredded cheese and layer it on. Final step, pop it in a 350° oven for 10 minutes.
That’s it! Dinner’s handled. How did you customize this recipe for your family? I’d love to hear in the comments.
