About the Authentic Italian Sub

This is an authentic Italian hoagie recipe. There was an Italian family that moved to Fort Walton Beach, Florida from Italy. They opened a successful sub shop and ran it for many years, as it was considered a local staple. In the 1970s, they retired and sold it to a young American who later expanded it to a 2nd location in a nearby college town. I helped get it open and worked there for a couple of years as an assistant manager. It was there that I learned a few Italian recipes and their cooking methods. There are many unique ways that Italian families cook, just as Americans do. You’ll thoroughly enjoy learning how to make an authentic Italian sub , as it was their number 1 seller.

There are a number of stories and myths about who started the first sub sandwich. Click here to see a homemade sub roll recipe and to read about this sandwich’s beginnings.
