It is a great day here in Cincinnati because for the first time in I don’t know how long, the Cincinnati Bengals are going to the Super Bowl! That’s right, folks, the football team who couldn’t make it past the first round in the playoffs, year after year, is going to the Super Bowl! So, this is an exciting time for the city of Cincinnati. Even my alma mater, UC, did pretty well with football this season. So, break out the game-day party recipes, and let’s celebrate!
Making party subs is simple and highly customizable. You can layer your subs with turkey, ham, roast beef, or all veggies. Or make a classic Italian Sub Sandwich, Classic Ham and Swiss Cheese Sandwich, Cuban Sandwich, or even a Turkey BLT sandwich. I used turkey and roast beef for this recipe because I love those two cold-cut options together.
What to put in a party sub
For this recipe, I used the typical sandwich toppings such as:
- Red Onion
- Hot and Sweet Pickles
- American Cheese
For the condiment, I made my sandwich spread of mayo, mustard, smoked paprika, honey, and a little vinegar. My husband told me I should bottle up that spread and sell it. He’s supposed to say things like that but the spread does give a nice sweet and tangy flavor.
I mentioned earlier how customizable this recipe is. You can get creative and use other sandwich toppings. Here are some ideas:
- Banana Peppers
- Hot Peppers
- Bacon Slices
- Provolone Cheese
- Pepper Jack Cheese
- Gouda Cheese
- Sharp Cheddar Cheese
For spreads that you can use on your sandwich, some of those ideas can be hummus, ranch dressing, simple oil and vinegar, guacamole,
Game Day Sandwiches are a great appetizer option perfect for your Super Bowl Party. Your guests will love Buffalo Chicken Wings, Loaded Potato Skins, and Fried Pickles! It sounds like a fantastic game-day menu! Enjoy the Big Game.
