Dagwood Sandwich South Philly Italian Style

Dagwood Sandwich

In my last post I made a batch of banana peanut butter blondies and in the comment section of the Youtube video, Jim from the TOS Tinman’s Easy Cooking channel left a note saying I needed to make a Dagwood sandwich to go with that Blondie. 

Why didn’t I think of that.

Encase the Blondie comic strip was before your time, Blondie’s husband Dagwood had a knack for concocting  huge multi-layered sandwiches that contained everything but the kitchen sink.  In my interpretation of the Dagwood, I focused more on the flavors you’d find in a South Philly Italian sandwich.

I pair the finest meats and cheeses I could get my hands on with a fresh grape tomato salad and some garlicky greens to add some freshness and acidity to juxtapose the richness of that charcuterie.

This turned out so well I’ll be having Dagwood daydreams for days.
