True story. Before I got my first car I rode my bike everywhere. And I mean everywhere. And one of the places I would go was K-Mart. According to Google maps now, it was 5.6 miles one way. That’s a good haul, so I worked up an appetite. For me that meant time to get a sandwich at the retailer. Now these years later I can walk to my kitchen and make that same sandwich at home. These copycat K-Mart sub sandwiches taste just like the ones I had oh so many, many years ago.

Copycat K-Mart Sub Sandwiches

These aren’t some fru-fru fancy sandwiches but they are super-tasty. They’re good eats, packed with meats and lots of flavor. These copycat K-Mart sub sandwiches hit the spot. They’re a great step up from just plain ole boloney and cheese, that’s for sure!

Also try my Philly style Italian hoagies.

  • plastic wrap


  • 4 sub rolls
  • 8 slices salami with peppercorns
  • 4 slices bologna
  • 4 slices honey-roasted ham
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • 1 ounce prepared yellow mustard
  • ¼ onion sliced thin
  • ¼ cup iceberg shredded
  • 2 tomatoes 16 slices, sliced very thin (you can use less if you want)
  • 16 banana pepper rings mild
  • 1 dill pickle sliced very thin


  • Gently open the buns along the hinge. If they don't open easily use a sharp long knife to cut into them, but do not cut all the way through. Lay flat onto a work surface.
  • Cut the meats in half. Also cut the cheese in half.
  • Squirt the mustard in a wide 'V' pattern onto the tops and bottoms of the buns.
  • On the top buns place 4-6 slices of the pickle.
  • On the bottom bun put 4 salami halves, 2 bologna halves, 2 cheese halves, 2 ham halves, 4 slices of tomato, lettuce, and 4-8 of the pepper rings.
  • Slowly close the sandwiches by pulling the top bun down. If the toppings start to slide out, push them back in with your hand or insert a long knife down the center of the sandwich to hold them in as you close the bun.
  • Wrap the sandwiches in plastic wrap.
  • Place in fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Serve cold.

  1. I was so happy when I saw this! My wife is younger and doesn’t remember the Kmart sandwiches but boy oh boy I do! Walking up to the store with my friends and sitting at the counter. Yes, they had a counter. They called at a lunch counter. I’m old. it was at the SS Kresge store, which then went on to become Kmart. But I digress. I absolutely loved those sandwiches and can’t wait to try them again! Thank you!
