My family likes sandwiches but we don’t eat them very often. Several months ago, I bought the ingredients I needed to make an easy at-home sub sandwich – it was a huge hit!!
Kids in the Kitchen: Easy At-Home Sub Sandwiches
- 1 loaf French bread
- 1/3 pound deli meat I used honey ham
- 1/3 pound deli meat I used mesquite turkey
- 10 slices cheese I used Gouda
- Optional: lettuce olives, tomatoes, mayo, mustard, etc.
Preheat oven to 350°
Using a bread knife, slice the French bread in half and put it on a cookie sheet.
Place the sliced cheese on both sides of the bread, slightly over-lapping.
Add deli meat - as much or as little as you want - to the bottom section of the bread.
Do not close the sandwich!
Bake (open faced!) for 8-10 minutes, or until the top cheese is bubbly.
Add toppings, and cut to 'fit' each person.
Depending on the age of your kids, one sandwich will feed about 5 people. We usually have one hubs-sized piece leftover for the next day’s lunch.
Colin helped me make last weeks easy at-home sub sandwiches. After I sliced the bread in half, Colin added the cheese and meats.
He is such a great helper!
What’s your favorite kind of sub sandwich?
