All the ingredients and flavors you love about an Italian hoagie (submarine sandwich) have come together in this unique Italian Hoagie Dip. You’re going to be looking for an excuse to try this tasty dip.
Italian Hoagie Dip
I love a good dip recipe. (I have an entire post dedicated to dip recipes. You can find that HERE.) So whenever I have the opportunity to add a new dip recipe to my collection, I’m totally on board. Today, we’re making this Italian Hoagie Dip.
I first tasted this dip several years ago when my Dad’s wife made if for a family get-together. I have thought about it off and on since then because it’s been on my “To-Make-for-the-Blog” List. Well, the hoagie dip finally made it to the top of the list, and I’m excited to share it with you today.
This is the time of year for a recipe such as this. Dips go great with football parties and watching the big game on TV. I realize things are looking a bit different this year, but I hope you’ll still find a reason to make this dip. (And in case you want more game day treats, I’ve got you covered there, too. I have a full collection of those HERE.)
I did not come up with the idea for this recipe. After doing an online search and looking through my recipe collection, I discovered that there are many versions of this dip. So, inspired by all of that, I gathered the ingredients I love and created what I think is a really good Italian Hoagie Dip.
What’s in Italian Hoagie Dip:
One of the best parts of this dip, and hoagies in general, is that you choose the ingredients. It all depends on what you like and have on hand.
Here’s what I put in my Italian Hoagie Dip:
- Deli ham, chopped
- Genoa salami, chopped
- Deli pepperoni, chopped
- American cheese slices, chopped
- Iceberg lettuce, chopped
- Tomato, chopped
- Banana pepper rings, chopped
- Red onion, chopped
Other things you might want to add: sliced black olives, jalapeño peppers, sweet peppers, and mushrooms.
For the dressing, I combined mayonnaise, red wine vinegar, extra virgin olive oil, and dried oregano. Feel free to add kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste.
How to Make Italian Hoagie Dip:
Putting this dip together is easy.
After chopping each item, I toss it into a large bowl. Once everything is cut up, I get into the bowl with clean hands and break everything up. It’s okay if some of the meat and cheese slices stick together, but I like to break things up as much as I can.
Next, whisk the dressing ingredients together and pour the mixture into the large bowl that contains the chopped ingredients. Toss to combine.
For a fun presentation, I decided to serve my dip in a bread bowl. However, serving the dip in a regular bowl is perfectly fine.
Finally, chop up fresh Italian bread for serving. Your Italian Hoagie Dip is ready to enjoy!
Can’t you just about taste this through the screen? It tastes exactly like an Italian sub sandwich! So-o-o good!
