While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Grab your favorite meat and cheese to slap together a Dagwood-worthy sandwich - May 5 is National Hoagie Day.
How did it end up with such a strange name? It seems there are several origin theories, but the roots are most definitely deep in Philadelphia's history. It's even the city's official sandwich.
A meat, cheese, lettuce and Italian-style bread concoction of the early 20th century, some say that men working in Pennsylvania's Hog Island shipyard during World War I enjoyed this satisfying stacker. Others say the name came from food vendors, nicknamed "hokey-pokey men" who sold antipasto salad, meat, cookies and eventually, giant antipasto-stuffed sandwiches.
Overwhelmed by the endless topping possibilities? No matter how you stack it, the end result is the same: you're going to stuff it in your gullet - so get creative and pig out.
