Italian Hoagie Dip Recipe

Hoagie Dip - an easy appetizer recipe that is ready in under 20 minutes. It tastes just like a hoagie! Italian Hoagie Dip

This Italian Hoagie Dip recipe is one of the best recipes I have in my arsenal.  It makes an appearance at every single party and the bowl is always wiped clean.

It’s one of those dishes that has people begging for the recipe.  I’m just letting you know that now, so you can be prepared if you take it to a party.  Don’t say I didn’t warn you! The great thing is, you can easily just send them here to my website to snag their own printed recipe!

You might know it as a sub or grinder, but here in northeast PA, we call it a hoagie. It’s one of my all-time favorite sandwiches.  Layers of Italian meats and cheese, topped with a tangy, Italian herb spread and garnished with lettuce, tomatoes, onions and peppers.  It’s a flavor explosion!

Whoever thought to take this classic sandwich and turn it into a dip was a genius!

Don’t get me wrong, the sandwich is great, but being about to spread the Italian deliciousness on a baguette slice or crackers is even better!

  3. I’m going to try this for a Christmas party but was wondering if you have ever put it in a bread bowl? You know, like a rye boat with pieces of bread around it?? I was thinking a nice loaf of Italian bread maybe? Appreciate your thoughts!

    Three cheers for this excellent recipe! This Hoagie Dip was perfect for game night. Once this tasty dip hit the appetizer table, it didn’t stand a chance of lasting past the half hour mark. It was gobbled up right away. Next time I will reserve some of the dip for us girls before the guys consume it all!

    I am all about taking a regular meal and making it into a dip. With 3 boys (plus a husband), I am a bit ashamed to say we have “snack night” more often than we should. I swear to all that is Holy, there is some type of sport on TV every night!!

    Anyway, I got sidetracked. I really just came on here to tell you thank you so much for this super yummy recipe. I was able to provide something different for (yet another) sporting event on television and still sneak veggies into my family!

    How far ahead can I make this? I figure it would be good to make ahead for the flavors to meld, but I don’t want the lettuce and tomato to get funky? I have made it before and LOVED it, but served it right away. Thanks!

    • You can definitely make this dip ahead of time – it’s great to let the flavors meld together. I would not add the lettuce or tomato until you’re ready to serve though. I usually prepare them and store them separately and add them right before serving.

  8. Hi there….I think it may have been me passing around the hoagie dip at Harborfest. My husband has a boat at Wright’s Landing (PrimeTime).

    Reply
    • Lol! I’ll bet it was you! My parents used to keep their boat at that marina (Little Bitty). We talked about that hoagie dip for days! I had to figure out how to make it! Thank you so much for the inspiration!
