The Sandwich

This is a sandwich I created from ingredients that my family really likes, which are pepperoni, artichoke hearts, feta cheese, and basil. I usually use pesto to spread on the rolls, but I couldn't find it at the store today. So instead, I tried the basil concentrate in a tube that you can find in the produce section. (I found it at Publix). I mixed it with a little mayonnaise and, for this sandwich, I actually liked it better than the pesto.

The Sandwich

hoagie rolls
1 pkg pepperoni
1 can artichoke hearts, chopped
1 container feta cheese
1 can sliced black olives
basil in a tube
fresh basil (opt)
banana pepper slices
jalapeno pepper slices
oil & vinegar dressing (I like Newman's)
splash of balsamic vinegar

Split the rolls in half. Combine 2-3 tbsp basil concentrate with about 3/4 cup mayonnaise. Assemble the other ingredients.

Spread basil/mayo mixture onto the bread. Place the pepperoni slices on the bottom half. Sometimes I use fresh basil leaves as well.

Add artichoke hearts, olives, crumbles of feta cheese, peppers, etc. Sprinkle a little oil and vinegar on top, then a final splash of balsamic vinegar. Bake at 350 for about 7-10 minutes.

Yum. It is a really intense combination of flavor. Great with cheese curls.

I made this for Lunch yesterday, and it was incredible. Martin LOVED it. And I especially love the name "The Sandwich".
