- Spread one half of the loaf with as much yellow mustard as you prefer.
- Spread the other half of the loaf with liberal amounts of mayonnaise.
- Cover both sides of the loaf with lettuce.
- Layer the shaved turkey, salami and sliced ham on one side of the loaf.
- Then layer the meats with as many slices of Lorraine and American cheese as you prefer.
- Top the cheese with slices of tomatoes and onions. You can add jalapeños and black olives on top if you prefer.
- Season the entire length of the sandwich with salt and pepper and place the other half of the loaf on top.
- Inserts 3-4 party toothpicks on equal distances to secure the two halves of the sandwiches together.
- Cut the loaf into 8 slices and serve with condiments and a side of chips or French fries.
The submarine sandwich originated in Italy and is thought to be brought over to the US by Dominic Conti. It is believed that he named his version of an Italian sandwich the submarine sandwich after he saw the recovered 1901 submarine, Fenian Ram.
