I have been wanting to buy these specialty Italian meats from Costco for a long time now. They’ve always tempted me to make some sort of sandwich out of them (or even just put on top of crackers). Well I finally broke down and got them along with some croissants when I saw someone eating a croissant sandwich. I said, enough! I need both of these right now, and they need to be together.
Voila, I give you this crazy huge and amazing Italian croissant sandwich. Not really a sub, but still amazing. I added lettuce, cheese, and tomato to round it out, but you can other favorites if you’d like. The cheese can stay or go (I can’t believe I just said that). It does add something to it, but the meats are so flavorful that you don’t really need the cheese for that. I do, however, recommend not leaving the tomato off…even if you’re not a fan of tomatoes. This is a bit hard to describe, but the tomato gives a nice bit of juice/liquid to the sandwich. The meats are on the salty side being that they are cured, so the juice from the tomatoes helps to cut that just enough.
I will admit that this sandwich is intense. And while I will be eating it again, it will be a while. Both the richness of the croissant and the richness of the meats have left me satisfied.
