This is the sandwich to make when you want an attention grabber! At a good Italian delicatessen, you'll be able to find the peppers and sliced meats as well as a crusty loaf that will hold all the fixings.

This recipe was originally submitted by Mean Chef (IHHDRO), and I adopted it after he left the site. My original review stated, "This is an incredible sandwich...the kind that you order from a great soup/sandwich deli. I loved it as is, but Hubby would have liked a few less capers, as he isn't as much of a salt-fiend as I am. I did have to use a sweet yellow onion, as I had forgotten to pick up a red one. I also used black forest ham and roma tomatoes. Great sandwich." We have made this several times and love this sandwich.
I ask you this, why don't more people know about these wonderful Nebraska treats? If I had the money to franchise a Runza restaurant in Florida, it would be a veritable cash machine! Cha-ching! I originally experienced these little wonders in their Nebraska homeland when I spent one memorable summer milking cows and swathing hay. After I returned to Florida, I experimented again and again trying to achieve the same level of yumminess. This recipe is close, but I still envy all those Cornhuskers who can purchase these yummies from a drive-through window.
The other day I had a sammich similar to this for lunch. I couldn't get over how good it was! So yesterday for Valentine's Day, I decided to recreate it in my kitchen for my honey. (Hence the "love" in the name) Dan really liked it so I decided to share it with the world. If you decide to try this sammich, I BEG you, don't use the "convenience food" stuff. This is a gourmet sammich and if you do not use the fresh ingredients, you will not get the full effect of the flavors.
Great for that run in the morning breakfast. You can also take frozen burritos with you when going camping. Just place the bag of frozen burritos into the ice chest, and by the time you're ready for breakfast the first morning, the burritos are fully thawed. Then simply reheat them in a large skillet over the campstove or fire grate.
I love this sandwich that is a signature dish at Denney's, Moon Over My Hammy. Like most things, it is much more economical to make at home and even, dare I say, better! I originally grilled this in butter, but after reading Dawnab's recipe for Grilled Cheese Diner Style, I will only grill sandwiches in mayo. You can use whichever you like best. This is great for a Sunday morning breakfast with fresh fruit.
I have made these many times for large gatherings everyone really loves them and there is never any left, the sandwiches may be made up to 24 hours in advance covered with plastic wrap and refrigerated, this makes a huge amount of sandwiches you may reduce amounts to half if desired.
This recipe came about when I had some leftover hotdog buns and some pepperoni. It's embarrassingly simple, but tastes like you just ordered from an Italian eatery. Kids will love this. My son loves it, and he is one of the pickiest kids I've ever met. I don't even use the sauce on mine.
Just the thing for a day when you're wanton something delicious, and a hamburger patty is just too restrictive. Loosen up your inhibitions and pile some loose meat on a bun. Wicked over hot, whipped potatoes as well.
I came up with this one day when looking to "jazz up" a grilled chicken sandwich. Adjust seasonings to your own taste, use more mayo, fresh basil, whatever strikes your fancy. Its easy and you can use low fat mayo too!
