Everyone’s preference for bread varies. Whole-grain and wheat French bread are healthier options, but the flavor and texture can overwhelm the sandwich. Try compromising with a softer white French Bread made with organic ingredients. Other options are ciabatta or focaccia breads. For a slightly warmer hoagie sandwich, lightly toast bread halves topped with gently melted cheese, a light drizzle of olive oil, sea salt, and fresh black pepper.
