NYC Hero Or Phily Hoagie

Buon Giorno Ladies & Gents,

As I am leaving tomorrow morning, at 7am for Puglia, I have decided to make myself a NYC Hero, or Submarine Sandwich or Phily Hoagie ...

Do you NYC HERO AND / OR PHILY HOAGIE ? What is your take on this famous SUBMARINE SANDWICH ? Would enjoy hearing from all of you.

Historical: Domenico Conti, and Italian American, opened a tiny grocery shop in Paterson, New Jersey, the city well known for its Colt Pistols Factory and Great Falls and thus, the sandwich became popular when the very famous Holland Submarine was on exhibit in West Paterson Park, New Jersey and resembled the sandwich !

Here are the ingredients from my favorite NYC Little Italy Deli ...

Italian style bread baugette ( hero bread )
shredded lettuce of choice
Evoo and Red Wine Vinegar
salt, black pepper and dried oregano to taste
Proscuitto di Parma
Thinly sliced Italian Salami
provolone
gorgonzola or asiago or a young Reggiano Parmesano
thinly sliced ripe tomato slices
onion very thinly sliced
dill pickle thinly sliced
Mustard of choice ( I use Dijón Green Peppercorn )

1. Layer the sandwich as you wish landing up with pickles as last layer and cheese just below the pickles ( one can toast broil if they wish )

2. Spread mustard of choice on the bread slices

3. Other options: Roast Turkey Slices to sub the Salami

Enjoy, Ciao,
Margaux Cintrano

Used to eat some very tasty but messy meatball heros at Coney Island's Ravenhall.

My favorite sub is shrimp salad with lettuce, tomato, and a squirt of hot sauce.

Bill: Both Of Your Heroes Sound Delicious

Thanks alot for your feedback and contribution. The Meatball Hero from Brooklyn sounds quite tempting ...

I used to travel via subway to a pizzeria, hole in the wall near Brooklyn College on Avenue J which prepared a pizza to die for and meatball heroes, worthy to remember ...

Leaving for Puglia, 7am Friday.

SUMMER PLANS ?

All my best,
Ciao, Margaux Cintrano.

Soft-shell blue crab Po Boy or oyster Po Boy would be my hero/hoagie/sub/grinder type sandwich choice!

Craig,

Sounds delicious. Have not had a Maryland soft shell blue crab Po Boy since I had been in Washington D.C. vicinity in 2011.

Thanks for feedback.
Margaux.

Not quite sure they spice them the same way in Maryland as they do in NO and I'm darn sure the bread and remoulade isn't the same.

From this Marylanders point of view it's about the soft crab and not the spices. I like them with simply a little salt & pepper in the flour.
For the bread I'd go with an Italian roll. Maybe,just maybe I'd put a dab of Mayo on it. But chances are I'd just eat the crab before it even had a chance to see the bread.

For a sub I like Ham,Salami(your choice),Cheese(again your choice),and lettuce.
EVOO on the Italian roll. Or Mustard & Mayo. If the latter is the choice then I'll want pickels. Either Dill or Bread & Butter.
