You know you are from Chicago if you know to never ask for ketchup on your hot dog, you know where to find the best Italian Beef, and you know that there are really only two seasons: Winter and Construction.

Having lived in the Chicagoland area nearly my entire life, it has been fun to learn about and support our hometown brands; brands that call Chicago home and play an important role in our communities.

I decided to put a fun twist on this Chicago classic and make a Chicago-Style Ham Sandwich.

To make this sandwich, you will start with Sara Lee® Honey Ham and top it with all of the ingredients that you’d typically find on a Chicago-Style Hot Dog. Don’t forget the sprinkle of celery salt, it’s the perfect addition to this ham sandwich. Use any sandwich roll that you’d like, or even a poppy seed sandwich roll if you can find them.

To assemble your beef and cheddar croissant, add slices of heated roast beef on a croissant and top with prepared cheddar cheese sauce. If you don’t want to use cheddar cheese sauce, you can opt for slices of cheddar cheese or shredded cheddar instead.

To assemble a more traditional Italian Beef sandwich, start with a sliced Italian Bread roll, add slices of heated roast beef and then top with either sweet peppers or my personal favorite, giardiniera.

While this is a simple sandwich, do not underestimate its deliciousness! You can even add spoonfuls of juice/gravy on top of the sandwich to make it extra delicious, or dip the entire sandwich in the gravy. In Chicago, this is called a “dipped” Italian Beef or a “Wet” Italian Beef.

Turkey Gyro Sandwich

If you are from Chicago, you know that while a gyro is not unique to Chicago, it is an important part of Chicago’s identity, especially if you visit Greektown! With that in mind, I decided to make a Turkey Gyro Sandwich.

Look at all of this incredible deliciousness! With so many tasty options, it will be hard to decide which sandwich to enjoy first.
