Sub, hoagie, grinder, whatever you call these classic king-size creations of multiple meats and cheese on a roll, one thing is for sure: you’re gonna need help polishing this monstrosity of a sandwich. If you decide to take on the Volpi Italian sub, pick a day in the not too distant future (a weekend for sure), invite those friends who are up for anything and tell them to bring the chips and beer. You’ve got the rest. Boy, do you ever.


Assembling your Volpi Italian Sub is a fairly simple task. You’ll start by slicing open the Italian loaf. For best results, put your thumb over the opening to the vinegar and oil bottles and drizzle a little of each half of the open loaf. Shingle the Romano, capocolla, Genoa and provolone across the bread. Dress iceberg lettuce with a pinch of salt, a drizzle of olive oil and oregano, if using. Add the tomato slices, onions, dressed lettuce and giardiniera. Close the sandwich. Cut into slices and serve.

Enjoy your Volpi Italian Sub!
