REHOBOTH BEACH DELWARE
GIANT SIZE SANDWICH
The Double Submarine is a Mouthful
How To Build One
It is a monster contraption, the double submarine, that nosed into sight along the East Coast
late in WWII. The original site of its appearance is a matter of contention but no one argues over its present home base.
Jack Twilley's, “stand up and at 'em snack bar” at Rehoboth Beach , Delaware, a most proper summer resort town. Twilley's little bar opens it's front on Rehoboth's main avenue, very near the
ocean beach and boardwalk. .
It is learned that “submarines” never miss a beach picnic, beer parties, boat trips. Mom's with home freezers buy 'subs' by the dozen to freeze, defrost, and eat, when the gang gathers.
Another trick is to wrap the 'Paul Bunyan' tibits in waxed paper, chill a few hours, slice crossways, eight cut per sandwich , a four bite snack, to serve with your favorite evening cocktail.
Take a long soft finger roll, the longer the better, at least nine inches long, or you can use
French Flute bread or Italian Hard rolls, just whack off nine inch cuts.
Split the bread, open it like a book, and then 'build'. Lay on, in this order, three thin slices of pressed ham, , two thin slices provoloni cheese, lettuce leaves, four slices of tomato. Sprinkle with
thyme, celery seed, salt, flood with olive oil, add onion's, dill pickle's, and slivers of real hot
peppers. You need to set your mouth on fire to really enjoy. Also, it's a bit better when chilled. Then
too, other sliced meats and cheese can be added to an individuals taste buds.
