Forging heros

Ah, the hero. Some may call it the submarine. Others may call it a hoagie, torpedo, or even grinder. It is a noble, healthy sandwich, brought to us from the United States (of course). Two pieces of a long bread roll cut in half, it is a beautiful sight.


This website will tell you everything you need to craft a beautiful hero sandwich.

My Favorite recipe

Here's a wonderful recipe that I use to make heros.

You'll need:

  • 1 loaf of French bread, cut in half

  • 8 oz. bologna

  • 8 oz. cooked turkey

  • 2 slices of tomatoes

  • 6 slices of American cheese

  • 1 medium green pepper julienned

  • 3 heaping cups of shredded lettuce

  • some mayonnaise

  • some Italian salad dressing

  • Salt and pepper

Mix it all together and put it on the bread and you've got heaven on a plate. Serve with some rippled potato chips and you're in American heaven.

Make sure to thank me later when all of your friends are oh-so-jealous of your decadent, delicious creation. And don't forget to tag your sandwich with #IForgedAHero so all of us can see your delicious creation!
