Annamaria's Story

Here in Ohio, concentrated in the Cleveland Area we have Mr. Hero Subs & Sandwich Chains. They're most infamous burger is the Roman Burger. Of course if you add waffle fries, cheese and add a bigger sandwich if you're super hungry, it could cost you about 15 dollars for a meal. It's such a simple burger that many local pubs are making the burger and you can make it at home too. This is far as I heard is the Cleveland born burger.


crusty italian hoagie rolls
1 lb
ground beef
18 slice
italian hard salami
12 slice
white american cheese or provolone
italian dressing
shredded lettuce (optiona)
sliced onions
sliced tomatoes

Directions Step-By-Step

Butter your hoagie rolls and pan toast them until lightly toasted. Lay a thin layer or mayo on the rolls. Place shredded lettuce, onion and tomatoes onto one side of hoagie rolls. Drizzle Italian Dressing over veggies.
Place salami slices in a skillet and pan fry them until they begin to bubble up. Remove them and set aside.
Shape 12 thin burger patties out of the 1 pound of burger meat and cook in a skillet until browned. Place a slice of White american cheese or provolone on burgers and place 2 patties onto veggie side of hoagie rolls. Place salami on top and top of hoagie bun.
You just made a Italian Roman Burger, Go and Enjoy! Note: I like these burgers with just tomatoes and onions, so the veggies are optional. If not using veggies, drizzle Italian dressing lightly over mayo.

    Hi, Annamaria! These were great and i cheated a little, so it was very fast and easy. I used frozen burgers and had my hubby cook em on the gas grill. Bought a bag of shredded lettuce, put salami on baking pan and cooked in the oven. All i had to do is slice the onion and tomato then assemble all of them, tada! This is a great to do fast during the week. Thanks again!
