We also sometimes toast the buns after the insides have been dug out. That also helps to keep the bun from getting soggy.

That is how we do our meatball subs and sausage and pepper subs. We line the inside with provolone cheese to keep the sauce from saturating the bun. It also goes on top and gets melted under the broiler.

Tried the broiler, left the inside cold, probably beecause it was cold. I do the toaster oven now, and all the ingredients are pre-heated.

of course. Anytime you just want to melt cheese or brown something under the broiler, the insides have to be warm/hot.

I don't have the right sauce for it.

Marinara is a simple Italian tomato sauce without meat. Not difficult to make, tomatoes, onions, garlic, S and p, a little basil and/or oregano, maybe some red pepper flakes, a little stock and/or wine. It should be fairly light tasting.

I've often thought of ordering from subway, I always stick with the cheese melt. I need to step outside my comfort zone. :)

Seriously?? I just don't know how to reply to that.
Some might try HAHAHAHAHA

It is off a joke I made up quick, standing there with me neighbor in the old hood. We had strays there and they did what cats did,. One jumped in my car and went for a ride, hopped out when we got back. People fed them and whatever, and maybe they kept the mice down because they were there, along with deer, alll kinds of foot animals like skunks, and the Woman next door had a garden up front which aas where I saw my first humigbird in my life.

But the neighbors would talk and whateer, so I go over there just for the heck of it and she has this cat and says "Want a cat ?" to which I replied "Naw, I don't have the right sauce".

That was THE BEST neighborhood in which to live.
