TJ's Deli Hot Sicilian Sandwich Recipe

Patterned after sandwich #60 from my local deli restaurant  TJ's Deli, this is my favorite sandwich in the world: The Hot Sicilian.

Sicilian food may have some vague familiarity with most American's palettes due to the fact it's a spicier variation of traditional Italian foods.

The food, like the word Sicilian originated from the island of Sicily, Italy whose cuisine, linguistics, and culture became varied as a result of its seclusion from main-land Italy.

Sicilian food is generally fast, great tasting, and relatively cheap.
