More About This Recipe
I've never been a sucker for sandwiches.
Growing up with a health-focused mom, I always figured salad was the way to eat. So I rarely took time to enjoy a proper sammie. That all changed my sophomore year of college, when a little sandwich joint opened around the corner from my bio class. The place was dingy. The sandwiches? Divine.
There's just something about meat and cheese served between two slices of hot French bread. It's…perfection. And since today is National Eat a Hoagie Day, you're really going to want to dig into a good one!
Just five basic ingredients are needed: Pillsbury French Bread, roast beef, roasted red peppers, fresh basil, and provolone. You'll also want to mix up a batch of garlic aioli (fancy schmants wording for flavored mayo spread) by mixing together a finely diced clove of garlic with mayo and a smidgen of Dijon mustard. Part of the fun of this recipe: It's all baked together inside a glorious bread braid.
Slice hot out of the oven, and bite into your slice the second it's cool enough to eat. Happy Hoagie Day!
