Friday Question: Subs & Hoagies

What's your favorite sub?  Or maybe you call it hoagie.  Or maybe you call it something different.  

My top pick goes to an eggplant sub.  Sliced, skinned, no breading, swimming in homemade sauce.  No cheese and on a homemade sub roll.  It's about as simple a hot sub could be.  Although, I eat mine room temperature.  Which is how I like all my subs.

How about you?  Hot sub?  Cold sub?  Room temperature?  And please, do tell us about the innards you like best ...

  2. My favorite....I'd have to say that would be a toss up between an Italian sub (hot, of course!) with lots of onion and black olives or just a plain ole meatball sub with provolone cheese. I'm not much of a sub eater, but if I am going to eat a sub, it will be one of these 2 :)

    2. Ham, turkey, bacon, cheese, tomato, lettuce and just a little mayo on Italian bread. And a quarter-pound chocolate chunk cookie on the side!

    3. Ohhh, that sounds very good. I will be trying that one here at home for sure, thanks.

      PS: lol on the quarter-pound chocolate chunk cookie on the side. That's great. Love it.

      THANKS!

    1. It's a type of sandwich but instead on a long sub roll, though some call them hoagies.

      I dunno why the two different words.

  5. My favorite sub is whatever one I am eating at the time.

  6. I grew up in northern PA where they call them hoagies but now I live where they call them subs. The thing I like best about subs is the bread, something whole grain and nutty. Inside I love me some turkey, provolone, lettuce and green peppers.

    1. Do you like your green peppers roasted or raw? I enjoy them both ways. So good on a sub.

  8. Hot sub for me. Never heard of hoagies. Roasted vegetables with a generous dollop of strong cheese for me.

    1. Roasted veg sub is another top pick for me, but hold the cheese. I dunno the difference really between hoagie and sub. I've just always called them subs, regardless of where I've lived.

      I think for me, because the bread looks like submarine. So I say, sub.

  9. Shrimp po'boy from Mother's in New Orleans. I've never been able to recreate their sauce.

    1. I had to Google that one. Never had it, but I did just buy some shrimp to later making into a spicy onion sauce thing. Then homemade bread for dipping.

      Have you Googled copycat recipes? I saw a few when looked up the sandwich.

  11. I do prefer warm subs. Usually I get a ham and cheese sub...I'm pretty plain!

    1. Mine is plain too, but so what?

      Still eats good.

  12. I've always called them subs. I prefer either meatball or steak, and the toppings will usually be the same- cheese, green pepper, onion, green olives, some tomato, and usually barbecue sauce.

    1. I've never tried a steak sub, yet. But I did put some good steak on one of my rolls just to taste. So that's something I want to try in full sub form.

  13. That one that goes underwater...

  14. I've never had an eggplant sub (and yes, I call them subs). Sounds like something I should try.

    1. Where I'm from they bread and deep fry the eggplant, then reheat it with sauce and cheese. But for me, I like it a lot cleaner tasting. Less muck, more veg.

  15. Mmmm...it's getting close to lunch, so this is making me hungry. I'd love roasted veggies on whole grain bread with balsamic vinegar and some baby spinach.

    1. Roasted veg sub is in my Top Picks as well. But good roasted, not crappy stuff. Never tried it with Balsamic. I'd give it a go though.

  16. We can them subs and I love assorted deli sub with way too much mayo, lettuce, and cheese. We have a sub shop that will put green olives on it too, and I do that sometimes. I love sandwiches and a sub lets you eat a giant one. YUM! Also, I am a cold sub kinda girl.

    1. Green olives. YUM! I like the black ones too. Do you have a cheese you like the best?

  17. I definitely have to go with an Italian...if someone makes me a mean Italian, I like that!

    1. We sold more Italian subs at the pizza shoppe than any other combination. Though to be fair, the shoppe didn't have but a few combos to pick from, but still, it was a hot item.
