There’s a lot of different ways to make an Italian Combo. Personally, I think the best one ever made is at Jersey Mike’s (now Mikee’s Place) in Southbury, CT. You have to get everything on it and add hot peppers and bacon. It’s the ultimate sandwich mostly because their bread is fresh and delicious. Remember, the key to a perfect sandwich is the perfect bread.
Kyle requested an Italian Combo before the big Jets game so I put my own version together and it was pretty delicious!
The dressing: I bought roasted peppers (in the jar) and blended them with some balsamic vinegar and a touch of olive oil. I spread that on both sides of the bread which is a fresh multi-grain I picked up at Trader Joe’s this morning.
I put some peppered salami, prosciutto, a smoked chorizo that was delicious with tomatoes, fresh mozzarella and arugula. The combination all together was perfect!
Use your own meats or go vegetarian. As I was eating it I thought, I could have done with out the meats for a healthier and less salty sandwich. The roasted pepper sauce with mozzarella, tomatoes and the sweet arugula- bene! Grab that glass of water because you’re going to need it after this feast.
