Your own personal “Hero” for Superbowl

Hero Sandwich

Hero Sandwich


There are many, many foods documented in the Bible that we turn to today for health and longevity.  Today I talked with Annie Mitchell Egan on Sonrise Morning Show/Sacred Heart radio about them.

This Hero Sandwich makes use of some of my favorites:
Vinegar, Olive Oil, Onion, Olives, Garlic, Oregano and Cheese. This is just the tastiest sandwich for that Superbowl party!


One bite and you’ll agree!  Vary the fillings to your liking – all vegetarian, soy meats, different deli meats – whatever.  The secret is hollowing out the bottom and top, so that the sandwich doesn’t fall apart when sliced.  I usually double the dressing ingredients.


One loaf Italian bread, sliced into two horizontally

½ pound each: sliced baked ham, Muenster or  provolone cheese

¼ pound salami

Tomato slices, sweet onion rings, leaf lettuce

Mediterranean Dressing

Go to taste on this.  If you don’t like black olives, omit, or use green olives. I like to double the dressing ingredients – there will be a bit left over.

3 tablespoons red wine vinegar or to taste

2 tablespoons each: small dice black olives and sweet onions

1-1/2 teaspoons dry basil (or palmful fresh chopped)

3/4 teaspoon each: minced garlic and dry oregano

¼ cup olive oil

Pepper to taste

Whisk together dressing ingredients. (Can be made a day ahead – bring to room temperature for easy spreading).  Set aside.  Hollow out bottom loaf, leaving ½” thick sides.  Hollow out top loaf, but leave sides a bit thicker.  Spread dressing on inside of top and bottom loaves.  Set top aside.  Start layering meats, cheese, vegetables and lettuce, brushing each layer with dressing, until you run out of filling. Press top onto sandwich and wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.  Cut into wedges to serve.  Serves 4-6.
