Italian Stallion Sandwiches for your Next Hike

Recently, we did a joint hike with Johnny and Kayleigh from Two College Foodies at Riley Wilderness Park. Johnny was kind enough to prepare a wonderful lunch and homemade Granola bars for both Ashley and I and has shared his recipes with our readers. Trust me, Ashley and I though the Italian Stallion Sandwiches were absolutely amazing!! (So much better than our traditional PB&J) If you are looking for something new to eat while out on your next hike, why not make an Italian Stallion Sandwich!! And if you are looking for good food recipes make sure to check out their website.

Italian Stallion Sandwiches 
Description: Sweet turkey breast, spicy Capicola ham and Calabrese salami, salty prosciutto, and sharp provolone cheese, topped with peppery arugula lettuce, all between hearty slices of fresh Ciabatta bread spread with a full-bodied pesto mayo. This is the ultimate sandwich to refill with after a long hike.

Serves 4-6


1 large ciabatta loaf

½ cup light mayo

¼ cup store bought or fresh made basil pesto

6 slices provolone cheese

6 slices Calabrese Salami

6 slices Capicola Ham

4-6 thin slices of Prosciutto

6 slices of deli Turkey meat

2-3 cups arugula lettuce or mixed lettuce


Slice the ciabatta loaf in half down the center (like a Subway sandwich). In a small bowl, mix the mayo and pesto. Spread desired amount on the inside of both ciabatta halves. On the bottom half of the loaf, lay down the cheese slices followed by the salami and ham slices. Lay the prosciutto slices horizonatily and completely cover the other meats. Lay down the turkey meat over all the other meats. Cover with lettuce and then place the top half of the loaf on top and press down. Cut into 4 larger sandwiches or 6 medium sized sandwiches. Wrap individually in foil for your hike!

  1. Yum! That sandwich looks great. (And yes, way better than PBJ!) I might just have to try to make that for my next hike.

    (Great blog BTW - thank you!)
