Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Hoagie Day

A hoagie is a type of sandwich that is traditionally made with Italian meats, cheese, lettuce, tomato, and onions, served on a long roll or baguette. The sandwich is also sometimes called a sub, grinder, or hero, depending on the region.

The origins of the hoagie can be traced back to Philadelphia, where Italian immigrants first started selling sandwiches made with meats and cheese on long rolls in the early 20th century. The name "hoagie" is said to come from the word "hoggie," which referred to a type of sandwich made by Irish-American workers who used to bring them to work in a container called a "hog" or "hoggie."

Today, hoagies come in many varieties, with different meats, cheeses, and toppings. Some popular fillings include ham, turkey, roast beef, salami, provolone cheese, and pepperoni. The sandwich is typically dressed with lettuce, tomato, onions, and sometimes other condiments like mayonnaise, mustard, or oil and vinegar.

In addition to the traditional hoagie, there are also many regional variations, such as the meatball sub, Philly cheesesteak, and Italian sub. Hoagies are a popular lunchtime option, and can be found in many delis, sandwich shops, and convenience stores throughout the United States.
