This is not a real Mediterranean recipe. I just made it up. I like it because it’s simple, easy to make, consists of just good meat, cheese and bread, and tastes good.
- 1 mini-sub roll (a small, slender 6″ sub-shaped roll; I like Asiago cheese rolls)
- deli-style, thinly-sliced smoked ham (Hillshire Farm is good)
- pizza-style pepperoni, for some spicy kick (I like Armour)
- goat cheese
- Slice the roll in half lengthwise. Optional: Heat the roll in the oven at 350°F for a few minutes first until the crust gets a little crispy.
- Slather the goat cheese generously on the insides of both halves of the roll. It helps to let the goat cheese warm up a bit ahead of time as goat cheese can be really crumbly and hard to spread when cold.
- Put down an overlapping layer of pepperoni slices on the bottom half of the roll. The rolls I like are just wide enough for one row of pepperoni.
- Pile on 2-3 layers of thin deli-style smoked ham, say 6-9 slices. Don’t lay “’em out flat, cafeteria-style. I like to twist or fold them for greater volume and texture.
- Put the top half of the roll on, and maybe slice the roll in half widthwise. Enjoy!
