Soup and Sandwich

Cold winter nights mean soup and sandwich for dinner.  Stop and Shop had a sale on Progresso soup a couple of weeks ago so I loaded up on the essentials: Italian Wedding, Chickarina, Chicken and Barley, Split Pea with Ham, and some Chicken and Sausage Gumbo. 

Here is a soup and sandwich dinner from a while back.  Started with a fresh piece of seeded italian bread, gutted, thinly sliced Boars Head Ham and Genoa Salami, Provolone, hot cherry peppers, tomatoes, black pepper, and mustard and mayo.  Good bread, thinly sliced meats, and cheese coverage are they keys to success for a great sandwich.  Notice in the picture below the cheese cover the entire sandwich resulting in cheese in every bite, unlike how Fratelli's layers the sandwich resulting in the taco effect.
