There are real benefits to making your own sub sandwiches. They are less expensive and definitely taste better. This is an easy way to make large sized sandwiches that are great at parties or large gatherings. I put all of the additional toppings like pickles, sliced onion and banana pepper rings on the side so people can add what they want. Each sandwich serves 8 and you can make different types if you have more than 8 people eating.
