Brown Bag Specials

Triple, Triple, Triple Sub

Makes 8 serving(s)


1 (1/2-lb) loaf Italian bread, unsliced
1/4 cup Italian or vinaigrette salad dressing
3 ounces* thinly sliced lean salami
2 ounces thinly sliced provolone cheese
3 ounces thinly sliced lean boiled ham
2 ounces thinly sliced part-skim mozzarella cheese
3 ounces thinly sliced roast beef
2 ounces thinly sliced Muenster or Colby cheese
1 cup (2 ounces) firmly packed torn up lettuce pieces or fresh spinach leaves
1/2 small red onion


Cutting board
Serrated bread knife (the kind with little teeth on the blade)
Liquid measuring cup
Dry measuring cup
Cutting knife
Plastic wrap


  1. On a cutting board, use the bread knife to slice the bread loaf in half long-ways so you have 2 long halves.
  2. Drizzle the salad dressing from a liquid measuring cup onto both cut sides of the bread.
  3. Layer the bottom half of the loaf with the salami, provolone cheese, ham, mozzarella cheese, roast beef and Muenster or Colby cheese.
  4. Stack on the measured lettuce or spinach leaves.
  5. On the cutting board, use the cutting knife to slice the 1/2 onion as thin as you can, kind of like the thinness of a CD. Scatter the sliced onions all over the lettuce or spinach.
  6. Cover with the top bread loaf half. Press down firmly.
  7. Tightly wrap the sub with plastic wrap. Use the bread knife to cut the sub, with the wrap on, into 8 equal pieces. Then, tightly wrap each piece with more plastic wrap so it's all sealed up. Lob one piece into your lunch. Make sure to peel all the wrap off your sub before sinking your teeth in!
  8. Store extra wrapped pieces in the fridge for up to 3 days.

* TIP: Here's how to measure out the ounces of meat or cheese you need. If it comes from a package, check the Nutrition Facts label found there to see if it lists how much a slice weighs or how many slices are in one ounce. If it's from the deli, you can weigh the slices on a kitchen scale. If all else fails, ask an adult for help!
