DEL DUCA GOURMET SELECTION VARIETY PACK
LUNCH AT HOME
I have been craving an Italian Sandwich for months and have eaten at three new Sandwich Shops in Honolulu in search of a good sub. Tried The Earl of Sandwich, Sprouts and Kaimuki Superette and they did not have anything that looked or tasted like an Italian Sub. Just last week I went into a place that has an Italian Sandwich on their menu and they told me it was not available on that day because they were out of the bread. I left disappointed once again and did not get my Italian Sub fix. At that point I decided to just make my own Italian Sandwich so while in Sam's Club I picked up Daniel Del Duca Variety Pack for $12.28. The Gourmet Selection included Capocollo, Prosciutto and Calabrese Salame. I also picked up some sliced Provolone Cheese. Created my own Italian Sandwich and it was GREAT! Better than any sandwich shop in Honolulu. I layered the three meats and cheese onto a fresh Deli Role and added Shredded Lettuce, local Hamakua Tomatoes, Dijon Mustard and Balsamic Dressing. I think the Balsamic Dressing is the key here. Really imparts a lot of flavor into the sandwich and makes it taste like the sandwiches I remember in New York and Chicago. Next time I will add Red Onion, Roasted Bell Pepper and Peppers to make it really authentic New York.
We made five 6" sandwiches with this package of meats which is around $2.50 per sandwich.
