Jimmy John’s to the rescue!
After I finished up at the gym last night, I stopped in Jimmy John’s for an important part of our supper. The restaurant is right next to our YMCA. While leaving the gym, I’m usually feeling dramatically famished and tempted to grab a mouthwatering Vito.
Yesterday, I was focused on one thing — heavenly yesterday-baked bread.
Did you know Jimmy John’s sells their day-old 16 inch French bread for 50 cents? I grabbed two and had my heart set on a Hawaiian pizza creation. Huge plus — this recipe is very quick and easy! Which is a nice reward when you’ve carved out some time and energy for gym-going!
Hawaiian Pizza Subs
2 Jimmy John’s subs or 2 French loaves
1 & 1/2 cups marinara or pizza sauce
8 oz can pineapple tidbits, drained
1 cup deli ham, sliced
1 & 1/3 cups mozerrella cheese
Slice bread horizontally, cut in half, and hollow out some of the bread to make room for toppings. (Try not to hungrily feast on the yummy insides.)
Spread sauce along each half.
Top with pineapple and ham on one side, cheese on the other.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
This tasted great and got the thumbs up from the husby! Of course the “Hawaiian” combo works — salty ham and sweet pineapple with melty cheese, and nicely toasted bread. Give it a try!
And now I’m dreaming of fresh ripe pineapple — nothing better, right? I keep trying to convince David that we should go to Hawaii. I usually use fresh pineapple and Pearl Harbor as my best points. Weird combination, but I’m hoping it works. Even if it takes ten, twenty, thirty years, I’m sure it’s worth it!
Anyone have some more stories or pictures I can use for my Hawaii campaign?
