Back in my home town of Winthrop, ME, the people are proud, much like any other small town. The people are especially proud of their football, and their mascot.
|Winthrop Rambler, a school bus|
Every Friday in the fall you will find most of the residents of Winthrop gathering at the football field, dressed in green and white, rooting for their favorite school bus. The idea came from when Winthrop did not have sports fields of their own, and they would travel around in a frumpy old school bus. Since then the bus has has some upgrades, and stands tall.
But what does this have to do with a sandwich? Well there was a local restaurant called Ned's, who dedicated a sandwich in name of the Rambler. A massive sandwich enough to feed a small team of people, loaded with protein to keep them going.
It's salty, it's cheesy, it's delicious.
1 Loaf Italian bread, sliced down the middle
1/4 lb Genoa Salami*
1/4 lb Hard Salami*
1/4 lb Cooked Ham*
1/4 lb Provolone*
1/4 lb American Cheese*
1/2 lb Bacon, cooked
2 Tomatoes, sliced.
1/4 Sweet onion, thin sliced.
*All of these are sliced to standard sandwich thickness
1. Spread mustard onto bottom half of bread, place meats one type at a time across the bread, stack remaining meats, making sure there is even distribution.
2. Place bacon either in strips, or crumble on top of the meats, place cheese on top of bacon.
3. Cook lower half of the sandwich in an oven at 350º until the cheese has just melted. Remove from oven and place pickles onto sandwich.
4. Spread mayonnaise onto upper half of the bread, evenly distribute tomato, and onion slices.
5. Combine halves, using a large knife, slice sandwich accordingly.
