These subs are a good year-round—for lunch, dinner or a late-night supper. When it's construction season, Brian may work until sundown. This meal's one that I can serve early to our kids and again later when he gets home.—Nanci Keatley, Salem, Oregon

"Delicious! This recipe only served three for me. It pairs perfectly with the Orange Romaine salad from "Best of Country 30 Minute Recipes". It's best made with bone-in ham from the deli counter - makes a huge difference! And the flavors balance out well... they seem like they would be too strong, but they weren't."
