The hoagie is also known as the sub, hero, grinder, Italian, torpedo or baguette among others.  It is a sandwich on a long Italian roll or French bread, filled with a variety of meats, cheese, vegetables, seasonings and sauces.  Let the fun begin as you create your own combination of fillings and have your hoagie either hot or cold.

 

In 1953, the Italians working at the World War I-era shipyard in Philadelphia, known as Hog Island, introduced the sandwich by putting various meats, cheeses, and lettuce between two slices of bread. It was referred to as the “Hog Island” sandwich which later was shortened to the “hoagie”.

 

A different explanation is offered by the Philadelphia Almanac and Citizen’s Manual. They believe that the sandwich was created by early 20th-century street vendors called “hokey-pokey-men”.

 

Yet another theory is that the word “hoagie” arose in the late 19th to early 20th century among the Italian community in South Philadelphia when “on the hoke” was used as slang to describe a destitute person.  Deli owners gave away scraps of meat and cheese on an Italian roll known as a “hokie”.  However, the Italian immigrants pronounced it “hoagie”.

 

Former Philadelphia mayor (and later Pennsylvania governor) Ed Rendell declared the hoagie the “Official Sandwich of Philadelphia” in 1992.
