Fresh Mozzarella Sandwiches from Joe's Dairy in NYC
Even the most bloodthirsty carnivores won't be disappointed by this sandwich's lack of meat. Thick slabs of stretchy, creamy, house-made mozzarella function as the epic protein center, in between tangy vegetables and chewy roll halves. Hungry yet? Better hustle over to Joe's Dairy fast -- these sandwiches typically sell out by early afternoon.
In both sandwiches, the cheese is loaded on the bread in enormous lobes, enough to make the mozz feel as substantial as meat. The roasted red pepper version adds sweetness and smoke; the sweet sun-dried tomato version is all about chewy texture and a welcome acidity.
