Sorry Boys...

When I was little, my parents would sometimes ask me what I wanted for dinner and I often said, "sorry boys." What I really wanted was a po-boy. I had always thought it was called a poor-boy and I missremembered it as sorry-boy. Opps

There are many different versions of this southern-style sandwich, but I really like the way my dad makes it.

Pop's Po-Boys
I think these look good, but usually they look better!
Fresh French bread
About 10 - 14 slices of deli-style cheese. I suggest a mix of the following: Munster, Pepper jack, Mild cheddar, and Mozzarella
About 10 oz of sliced meat. I just buy a couple of the variety pack sandwich meats that include some of the following:Ham, Salami
Bologna, and Turkey
Mustard
Mayo
  • Preheat the oven to 350
  • Cut the bread in half
  • Put an even layer of cheese on the bottom, start with the cheese that melts the best - I start with munster
  • Follow with an even layer of meat
  • Continue alternating layers of meat and cheese until your sandwich is full (about 6 layers or so total) - make sure to end with a layer of meat
  • Wrap the sandwich in tin foil and place on a baking sheet and into the oven
  • Bake for about 30-40 min - until the bread is crispy and the cheesed is melted
  • Carefully unwrap the sandwich and cut into about 3-4 servings
I left the top layer without cheese so the top slice can be pulled off and you can add mayo or mustard.
This recipe can easily be swapped out with different meats and cheeses. I haven't found a combination yet that doesn't work!

This is a staple in my house now and I often use it as a quick backup dinner when I have last minute dinner guests. It's also great to bring for camping or something to make ahead for the coming week's lunches.
