Grilled Sub Sandwich

After a long hard day at band camp, my daughter comes home with a huge appetite. This sandwich not only satisfies my hungry marcher; it is also fast and easy to prepare. -Char Shanahan Schererville, Indiana
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1 large green pepper, thinly sliced
  • 1 small onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
  • 1/2 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 loaf (1 pound) unsliced Italian bread
  • 1/3 cup prepared Italian salad dressing, divided
  • 2 ounces sliced deli turkey
  • 4 slices Swiss cheese
  • 2 ounces sliced deli ham
  • 3 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 ounces sliced deli pastrami
  • 1/2 cup sliced dill pickles
  • 1 large tomato, thinly sliced
  • Additional olive oil


  • In a large bowl, toss green pepper and onion with oil. Place on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 12 in. square). Fold foil around vegetables and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over medium-hot heat for 12-15 minutes or until tender; set aside.
  • Cut loaf in half horizontally; remove bread from top half, leaving a 1/2-in. shell (discard removed bread or save for another use). Brush cut sides of loaf with salad dressing; place cut side down on grill. Grill, uncovered, over medium heat for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Place bottom of loaf on a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 18 in. x 12 in.). Layer with turkey, two Swiss cheese slices, ham, cheddar cheese, pastrami and remaining Swiss cheese. Top with green pepper mixture, pickles and tomato.
  • Drizzle remaining dressing over cut side of bread top; place over filling. Brush bread with additional oil. Fold foil around sandwich and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 4-8 minutes or until cheese is melted. Cut into slices with a serrated knife.

    Yum!!!!! Next time I will spritz the foil with some cooking spray or oil before I build the sandwich on it because mine was a little stuck to the foil!!! Not very difficult and super delicious!!!

    I use whatever cheese and meat and dressing I have on hand and these always turn out great! Thanks so much for submitting!

    Quite a few steps for a sandwich but worth it. Used pepper jack instead of swiss and salami instead of pastrami.
