These sandwiches are delicious, super quick to make, and VERY filling! These tasty little guys are always a crowd pleaser! You can serve them at a dinner party or on any night you are craving a real Italian hoagie.
I have also tried this recipe with gluten-free rolls and they were a huge success among those that follow a gluten-free diet. I usually serve these sandwiches with french fries but anything will surely taste amazing :)Italian HoagiesServes 4Prep. Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 15 minutesCost per Serving: Approximately $2.45
Ingredients:1 tsp. of olive oil
8 oz. (2 ½ cups) of sliced mushrooms
1 cup of thinly sliced onion
4 hero rolls split in half
6 Tbsp. of purchased basil pesto
8 oz. of sliced cooked turkey
2 cups of yellow banana peppers
4 oz. (1 cup) of shredded mozzarella cheese
1. Preheat oven to 425F and have a baking sheet ready.
2. Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Then add the mushrooms and onions and sauté for approximately 5-7 minutes or until the mixture is lightly browned.
3. Spread the slit hero rolls onto the baking sheet and spread both sides with the basil pesto. Top one half of the roll with the turkey and banana peppers and the other half of the roll with the mushroom and onion mixture. Proceed to sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on the half with the mushroom and onion mixture. (In the picture shown below, mine look slightly different than yours because I was unable to combine both my mushrooms and onions together because I accommodating for a picky eater.)
4. Place in the oven and bake for approximately 5 minutes or until the mozzarella cheese is melted.
