Recipe:  Hoagie Spread.  It’s good! (and perfect for a Super Bowl party!!!)

Looking for that perfectly pleasing, totally man-food to serve up at your Super Bowl party?  Look no more!  This Hoagie Spread, though it may seem a little strange, it really super-delish and a real crowd pleaser.  You can serve it on crackers, breads or any kind or even with some veggies.  If you don’t have a food processor you can just chop everything up real fine and combine, but I rather like the creamy texture the food processor provides.

Makes about 4 cups

Ingredients

½ pound imported ham

¼ pound Genoa salami

¼ pound pepperoni

¼ pound Provolone cheese

¼ pound American cheese

½ head iceberg lettuce (I use half a bag of pre-shredded lettuce)

¼ cup chopped onion

4 cloves garlic (I use 4 or 6 cloves of roasted garlic from my grocer’s antipasti bar)

Hoagie seasoning, to taste

Up to ½ cup mayonnaise to moisten dip

Bread, crostini, crackers to serve

Optional: chopped tomatoes, onion, peppers, jalapeno for toppings

Preparation

Coarsely chop or tear all of the meats and cheeses and put in a food processor.  Add in the lettuce, onion, garlic and about 1 tablespoon (or to taste) prepared hoagie seasoning.  Pulse a few times to mix, then process until ingredients are thoroughly combined and still a bit coarse in texture.

Turn out into a bowl, mix in mayonnaise to moisten.  Taste.  Adjust flavor with additional hoagie seasoning.  Serve with bread, crostini, crackers.  Top with optional toppings if desired.
