I had the dads over for Father's day and thought, what's better then some home made subs? I usually pick up homemade challah from the local Jewish deli, you may recall the French toast I've made in the past. This time I had two giant loafs! I decided to make an Italian and a turkey BLT.

I went to the deli and got some fresh sliced oven gold turkey, honey ham, provolone and yellow American. I also got a pack of sliced salamis from Costco. There are just some things you need sliced fresh if you ask me.

I also cooked some bacon on a skillet and left it on a paper towel to dry.

I sliced each loaf from the long end down. Here is the important part, the challah bread is a little more bread then you may want for a sub, so I scooped out the middle portions on the Italian.

For the turkey BLT, I should have sliced a out a piece of the bread, so instead of 1 cut, made 2 and threw out the middle portion. The loaf proved to be a little to much bread to meat ratio, but for next time now I know!

Then added all the fixins and we all dug in!

Both Subs
slice the challah long ways and remove extra bread from the top or slice in thirds and discard the middle to avoid having too much bread.
layer the meat and add all the fixins
  • Cut or scoop some of the bread out of the load since the challah bread tends to be thicker then a typical sub.
