This Ham and Cheese Hoagie recipe comes from my brother-in-law who is practically famous for them. 🙂 Pair these hearty sandwiches with a light side salad like this Olive Garden Salad or this summer Panzanella Salad. My brother-in-law’s “famous” sandwich This sandwich is my brother-in-law’s specialty. His wife–my sister– has raved about it to me a few times, yet after hearing her description of it, I was a bit skeptical. After he made them for a few more of my siblings and their spouses to great reviews, though, I knew I had to give this sandwich a try. And now I totally get the hype. These Ham and Cheese Hoagies are incredible! They’re a combination of a cheesy ham sandwich and a Philly cheesesteak, and they couldn’t be easier to make. Bonus: they’re also very inexpensive and great for clearing out those lingering leftover veggies in the fridge. While you will be chopping a few veggies, once they’re in the skillet sautéing, it’s pretty much hands off. These sandwiches can be on the table in 30 minutes or less! And while I normally consider sandwiches lunch fare, Ham and Cheese Hoagies are hearty and comforting enough to be enjoyed as a filling dinner. Ham and Cheese Hoagie variations Swap the meat. I know, I know, these are ham and cheese hoagies, but feel free to use thinly sliced steak or browned ground beef or a different meat instead of ham. Switch up the veggies. If there are veggies in these hoagies you don’t like, swap them for more a of different veggie. Simplify the seasonings. These Ham and Cheese Hoagies are supposed to be easy! So if you don’t have all the different seasonings, just use 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning instead. Ham and Cheese Hoagie tips If you don’t want to use the oven at all for this recipe, no worries. Simply add the cheese and cover the pan. Residual heat will melt the cheese enough that you can then gently stir the cheese into the veggies and ham. Slice the veggies thinly and evenly. The more evenly the veggies are cut, the more evenly they’ll cook up. Cut long strips of veggies in half. If the pepper or onion slices are too long, they’ll fall out of the sandwich. Aim for 2-inch-long strips. QUICK TIPButtering the buns and toasting them adds a great flavor and keeps the bread from getting soggy too quickly.

Thinly slice the peppers, onion, and mushrooms. (See Note 1.) Mince the garlic and chop the ham.COOK: In a large (12 inch) oven-safe skillet, heat the olive oil on medium-high. Add in the sliced peppers and onion. Season with salt and pepper, about 1/8 teaspoon each. Sauté, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes or until softened and onion is translucent. Add in the sliced mushrooms and garlic. Stir-fry for another 3-5 minutes or until veggies are crisp tender. Add in the chopped deli ham along with the parsley, basil, Italian seasoning, and dried thyme. Season again with salt and pepper to taste; I add about 1/4 teaspoon of each. Stir and heat through the ham for about 2-3 minutes. BROIL: In the pan, separate the mixture into 4 equal parts and section those parts into 4 mounds in the skillet about the width of the Provolone cheese slices (see picture in post). Place a slice of cheese over each section. Cover the pan and let melt for a few minutes, or slide into the oven and broil for 1-2 minutes, watching closely to avoid burning anything. Gently mix the cheese into the peppers and onions in each individual portion. The cheese will help hold everything together.HOAGIE BUNS: If desired, spread butter on the insides of the buns. Add to a skillet or griddle and lightly brown the buns over medium heat. Add one scoop of the cheesy meat and veggies per bun. Enjoy while hot! Recipe NotesNote 1: Veggies: Slice the veggies thinly and evenly for even cooking. If the pepper or onion slices are too long, they'll fall out of the sandwich easily. Aim for 1.5 to 2-inch-long strips, so cut long strips in half lengthwise.
