The American submarine sandwich also known as American sub, All-American sub, American hoagie or American hero is a type of submarine sandwich similar to the ham and cheese sandwich and Italian sandwich. The American submarine focuses on American meats instead of Italian and traditionally uses, sliced Turkey breast, ham, American or cheddar cheese, chopped or shredded lettuce, tomatoes and green peppers on a roll of bread. Some variations include bologna, salami or both.[1][2]

A French variation called "pan bagna" includes tuna.[3]
