I’m not sure. Maybe it was the simple flavors. Or the fresh bread. But there was something about this copycat of Firehouse Hook and Ladder Sub that I really, really liked. I made this three days in a row. I probably would’ve made it a fourth day if I hadn’t run out of sandwich meat. This sub is now my go-to sandwich when I pack lunches for day trips, specially if we’re going antiquing.

I think it’d be ok to play with this recipe for a copycat Firehouse Subs Hook and Ladder sub. The base recipe is fantastic, but there’s always room for personalizing it if you’re in the mood. Spice it up a little bit with jalapeno jack cheese maybe. Use rotisserie chicken instead of turkey or ham, perhaps. Use a different bread. But, I wouldn’t mess with the mix of mayonnaise and spicy mustard. I think it was my favorite part. Not too mustardy. Not too mayonnaise-y. After all, it’s a great-tasting sandwich spread.

I recently discovered Blue Plate mayonnaise, which I think is the best around. If you can’t find it locally you can pick it up online for a fair price.
