Dagwood Sandwiches

When I was a kid my Nana would always talk about Dagwood sandwiches. I never heard anything but the word sandwich…. Oh joy! I was never a kid that liked sandwiches, but at Nana’s house Dagwood sandwiches didn’t mean just a plain old sandwich! Nana’s Dagwood sandwiches were beastly sandwiches and jumbo works of art! 

I loved Dagwood’s! It ever occurred to me until a few days ago that Dagwood sandwiches had everything to do with the comic strip Dagwood! Nana loved that comic strip but I never associated the two. It hit me the other night when my family and I were eating our Dagwood sandwiches that Dagwood would have massive sandwiches just like Nana’s. Duh!

We never eat at places like Subway because we make our own. Not only are they better but you know exactly where everything came from, what’s on your sandwiches, they are tastier, and cheaper too. Fresh and like Nana’s a work of art!

Our sandwiches cost no more than a $1 a person. They were almost too big to finish and oh so good! These are the only sandwiches I like!

Ingredients (We love):
  • French bread loafs
  • Italian dressing
  • Cheddar cheese
  • Pepper jack cheese
  • Ham
  • Pepperoni slices
  • Lettuce
  • Onion
  • Pickles
  • Avocado
  • Tomato
  • Bell pepper
  • Salt/pepper to taste
(Yes Simple)
  1. Pre-heat oven to 450 degrees
  2. Slice French bread into multiple pieces the slice each piece half way through length wise, then add your Italian dressing (Generously), meat and cheeses. Place each sandwich individually in pieces of tin foil wrapped tightly.
  3. Bake for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted then top with veggies, salt and pepper and then serve. Delicious!

My mom used that term all the time when she created masterpiece sandwiches from odds and ends in the fridge.
