England Patriots!! They lost last night, sniff sniff...But, that
did not stop me from enjoying this Hoagie Dip. I was flipping
through The Food Network magazine a couple weeks ago and
saw Mary Alice's Hoagie Dip and knew that it would be on my
football menu. I changed it up a little and it was like the best
Italian sub, you have ever had!! I barely had time to take this
picture because it went gone in an instant!!
Mary Alice's Hoagie Dip
1 medium red onion
3 pickled pepperoncini peppers
1/2 head iceberg lettuce
1 large tomato, halved and seeded
1/4 pound deli-sliced genoa salami
1/4 pound deli-sliced ham
1/4 pound deli-sliced turkey
1/4 pound deli-sliced prosciutto
1/4 pound deli-sliced provolone cheese
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 10 to 12 inch round loaf Italian bread
1 baguette, cut into pieces for dipping
1) Chop the onion, pepperoncini, lettuce and tomato
into bite size pieces. Dice the meats and cheeses.
2) Combine the chopped vegetables, meats and cheeses
in a large bowl. Add the olive oil, oregano, basil and red
pepper flakes and stir until everything is combined.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
3) Carve out the center of the bread loaf to make a bowl
( don't cut through the bottom) and cut the scraps into
bite-size pieces. Serve the hoagie dip in the bread bowl,
with extra bread.
