As summer slips into fall, and football parties abound, join our Official Lab Taster, Henry, and I as we help you create another crowd pleasing tailgate recipe!

On this episode of Foodie Friday, we combine everything you love about an Italian hoagie (sub?) into a simple and delicious dip that your football foodies will love! We combine fresh, sliced deli meats and cheeses, and blend them with Italian spices and crisp lettuce. Layered into a bread bowl and served with bread cubes, this is the perfect appetizer for your next tailgate!

If you are looking for a great place to cheer on your favorite team, check out Amalfi's bar and restaurant in Lawrenceville. Bartender Johnny always has some great drink specials, and the kitchen is always cooking up the perfect game day food!

Henry and I know you'll love this tasty dip, and we love hearing your feedback!
