Tasty Tuesday: Italian Clipper

I used to work in a cafe that had a sandwich called the Yankee Clipper. It was basically your average Italian sub with ham, turkey, pepperoni, mozzarella & pepper jack cheeses toasted on a hoagie roll & topped with lettuce, tomato & Italian dressing. Needless to say, the hubs always ordered them so I make them at home quite often now. Until one day, when I didn't quite have all of the ingredients, so I improvised. Which resulted in a whole new level of deliciousness. 

•hoagie bun
•Greek yogurt/cream cheese blend, softened
•dry Italian salad dressing mix
•crushed red pepper flakes, optional
•deli ham
•deli turkey
•mozzarella cheese
•fresh spinach
•thinly sliced tomatoes
•white onion, thinly sliced
•zesty Italian salad dressing

- Slice hoagie rolls in half lengthwise. Place cut sides up on baking sheet & place in 375ยบ oven until lightly toasted. 
- While the hoagie buns are toasting, mix together the Greek yogurt/cream cheese blend, dry Italian dressing mix & crushed red pepper flakes, if desired. Set aside. 
- When the buns are lightly toasted, remove from the oven. Set aside the tops & spread the Italian cream cheese blend on the bottom halves. 
- layer meats & cheese on the bottom halves & return to the oven until the mozzarella cheese is melty.
- To assemble, top bottoms with spinach, tomato, onion & zesty Italian dressing. Replace tops & enjoy!
