    CHRISSYG's Note:

    More Philly Stuff? You got it! Here's how to make a real Hoagie. The word Hoagie came from the sandwiches that used to get eaten by workers over on a place that was nicknamed "hog island" The workers there would bring crusty rolls with Italian meats and some olive oil and they became known as "hoggies" which eventually morphed into hoagie... Now that I've sounded like a Cliff Claven... the only other thing I have to say is don't make this with a soft roll! It has to be a GOOD crusty Italian Long Roll!

    1. 1
      Slice the rolls, but not all the way through.
    2. 2
      Place the vinegar and oregano in a small bowl. Slowly whisk in the oil until emulsified.
    3. 3
      Remove some of the bread from the center of each half of roll.(if desired)
    4. 4
      Drizzle a little of the olive oil mixture on the bread.
    5. 5
      Place first the meats, then the cheese in layers.
    6. 6
      Top with the tomatoes, onions, then the lettuce. Drizzle with more of the dressing, as desired.

      Yo! This is a REAL hoagie! The only problem is that you can only get real hoagie rolls in the Philly area! They are crusty on the outside and slightly "chewy" on the inside. And you forgot some of the best parts - sweet & hot peppers!!!

      I think one of the reviews claiming that Philly doesn't have decent hoagie roll is bogus. The problem is, I live in upstate NY near Canada, and there are no decent hoagie rolls. I have resorted to using baguette which has a thicker crust and the bread is too dense. However, the baguette is better than what they market as a sub/hoagie roll...nothing more than a large hot-dog bun (yuck). Everyone who understands hoagies knows that if you don't have the right bread, it won't matter if you have Prosciutto di Parma...the hoagie will taste'd be better off eating the meat/cheese without the bread. Why can't I find a decent bread up here???!!!

      This is a good recipe. I am from Philly now living in SW Florida. I am happy to report that Publix ( Florida ) now has a hoagie roll almost as good as Carmen's Deli in S. Jersey. The review about rolls in New York or N. Jersey is bogus since their recipe is not a hoagie but called a hero. Yuk. ( too much vinegar ) on a hero. It ends up tasting like a Jesus salad, lol.
