September 14


First occurrence:

Not to be confused with Hoagie Day.
This sandwich is so well loved that it has 2 holidays!

The origin of the word “hoagie” is not entirely clear
because there are many versions of the origin.

Is it named after a person, or because it was said to come
from Hog Island or did it come from a mispronunciation
of the “hokie” sandwich?

To make a hoagie you need a hoagie roll.
A hoagie roll is a long-ish yeast bread made with
slightly fermented dough.

The hoagie roll is also known as a “hero roll”. Presumably because
“you had to be a hero to eat such a large sandwich”.
Another name this sandwich goes by is “grinder”.
