Seriously? We have to suffer through a 230 commercial before we can see the video?! As if there aren't enough ads on these pages!!

Wonderful flavor. Served nice and hot this sandwich is a requested favorite at my house.

This recipe is crying out for homemade Italian dressing made with lots of oregano, garlic powder a bit of basil apple cider vinegar, olive oil salt pepper brush the bread with this not that's Italian( I sometimes finely mincee fresh garlic instead of using garlic powder)

I have been making this sandwich since it first aired a few years ago. Everyone loves it.

I would put roast beef instead of salami but this would be very good.
