Hump Day Hogs

About a week ago, I gave you a sneak peek of an awesome sandwich I had recently at Wally’s Deli….sandwichpeek

Mmmmmm. So tasty.

I don’t know how we managed to do it, but we ended up with this amazing deli practically in our backyard. Well…. if we had a backyard to our condo. And, actually its more to the “right” of our condo than in the “back” but you get the point. If you don’t, I’ll spell it out for you: Wally’s is super close to where we live.

And their sandwiches are really, really good. Technically they serve “hogs.”

— Let me take a moment to delve into this a bit further … I’ve found that a lot of people out here in our neck of Pennsylvania call sandwiches “hoagies” but Wally’s Deli calls them “hogs.”  Don’t ask. Because I just don’t know why. The deli is swathed in pig inspired decor, but there isn’t a lot of pork on the menu. There is more turkey, in my opinion. But I’m not counting because I don’t care. And I love the pig motif. Of course. —

So, I’ve tried at least five of their hogs since we moved here. And I plan to try at least five more. Who am I kidding? I will probably try all 25 of their specialty sandwich-hoagie-hogs on their menu. Thankfully I have Brad Pitt joining me on most of my visits to Wally’s and we each get our own sandwich and share. Its the perfect way to tackle as many hogs as possible.

Since Sandwich Saturday is still a few days away AND since I have an extraordinary number of sandwiches to share AND since I am too excited to wait any longer to show you these delicious deli creations, I’m going hog wild and sharing them today.

Without further ado, here they are ….

Oh. You want to see each one individually in full awesomeness? Okay. Fine. Here:wallys1 wallys2 wallys3 wallys4 wallys5

Happy Hog Hump Day!

  1. Their bread looks really, really good. As in fresh, yeasty and light good. I just wouldn’t vandalize it with all that gooey stuff.

    More importantly, inquiring minds have a question. Is “hog” pronounced like the animal or does it have a long “o” and sound like a shortened version of hoagie?
