The "Rocket Man" Sammie

Tammy Brownlow


Hot Capicola is a well-seasoned, slightly spicy roasted ham deli meat. It pairs really well with the Arugula Rocket I chose for this sandwich. With fresh sliced tomato, onion, cheese, and a little olive oil mayo - this sandwich puts your taste buds in flight(:

I hope you enjoy this combination as much as I did.

How to Make The "Rocket Man" Sammie


  1. Spread olive oil mayo on bread. I chose Miracle Whip for the sweet and tangy flavor it adds to the sandwich. It's a nice contrast to the spice.
  2. Top two slices of bread with about 4 slices of capicola. I like to fold them over slightly as shown.
  3. Top with sliced onion, cheese, arugula, and tomato. Salt and pepper tomato if desired.
  4. Top with other slice of bread and enjoy!
