I’ll make a prediction: there’s gonna be a bunch of us at Bakers this week! Feel free to wander the aisles, see another person with a stack of coupons and think “Does she know about Mom Saves Money? She should!” Especially since Nicole posts all the best deals! Make sure you check out that list!
Here are some menu suggestions for things on sale this week:
Pepper Steak – This one has been on my pinterest boards for a long time and I haven’t yet made it. With the sweet peppers on sale at Aldi’s this week, maybe this is my chance! I’m always looking to add a little variety to my menu and another Chinese-ish dish would do quite nicely.
Sloppy Joes – Maybe it isn’t the most gourmet meal in the world, but with beef on sale and sloppy joe sauce on sale, this would make for an inexpensive time for sloppy joes! You can even turn it into Sloppy Joe Grilled Cheese if you were so inclined!
Spaghetti Pie – Pretty much everything needed for this recipe is on sale this week too.
Beef Enchiladas – Use your own enchilada sauce recipe. Use a canned sauce. Use the homemade sauce in this recipe. Doesn’t matter – it’s all good!
Marinaded Chicken Breasts – Grill these. Bake these. Crock pot these. Again, it’s all good! Just uses chicken and salad dressing. Load your plate up with veggies (also on sale this week) and you have a great, healthy meal!
As is the case with most of my recipes, this is a simple one. It’s for a baked sandwich – like the kind you get at Quiznos. And really, it’s quite versatile. Don’t want to make it with the meats that I have listed? Try turkey or roast beef. Want to jazz it up more? Add sliced onions or black olives. I think adding a bit of Italian salad dressing would be awesome – that’s how I always got my sandwiches at Quiznos.
I use hoagie buns, but you could use brat buns or even hamburger buns (if you wanted a smaller sandwich). I like this recipe as it is really easy, but it’s also really easy to double or triple if you’re making dinner for a crowd. Just get more ingredients. It’s a way of having sandwiches, but a little more fancy than just “slap some bologna in between 2 slices of bread and call it a day” kind of thing.
Italian Baked Hoagies
- 6 Hoagie Rolls
- 1 (4oz) package Salami
- 1 (4oz) package Pepperoni
- 1 (9oz) package Smoked Ham
- Thin Sliced Mozzarella (24 slices)
- 1/2 stick Butter - softened
- 1 teaspoon Dry Italian Seasoning
Preheat oven to 350°
Mix butter and Italian seasoning. Evenly spread butter on inside of hoagie rolls.
Layer 2 slices of mozzarella, 2 slices salami, 2 slices pepperoni and 2 slices ham. Top with 2 more slices of mozzarella.
Once sandwiches are assembled, place into a large baking dish. Make sure they are tightly pressed together sideways with the open side facing up.
Bake for 10 minutes for a hot melty sandwich. (Bake longer if you prefer a really toasted sandwich)
