Recipe is as follows, mayo on one side of bun mustard on the other. 1 slice of ham, bologna, and salami, 2 slices of American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and banana peppers. Place in plastic bag and marinate in refrig for 2 or 3 days.....lol

    Yup, that describes the taste I remember. Meat cut so thin it had one side, with a smathering of wilted,shreadded lettuce,overrripe and impossibly thin slices of tomato stuck together with processed, American cheese slices that had melted slightly at room temperature to a goo. All marinating together in a condensation filled plastic bag at room temperature. Once the marinading process was complete by the evening, they turned on the blue(Goo?) light and sold them 3 for a dollar to get rid of them. "Hello Shoppers..."

    Geesh,I could hardly wait to find one waiting for me in the morning for my lunch. Down here, they must have been shorting us. Ours only had pickles. Anyone remember the equally disgusting thing they called a ham sandwich also packed in bags using a small,sweaty,round roll with the same ingredients except the tomato? Those went 5/$1 in the late evening. They used to have these clips like you typically see holding potato chip bags that they clipped these cloudy bags of mush to. Maybe it was different during the day, but when our family went there in the evening, this is what was there and they sold them out in the latter evening.

    If you're reading this Tara, then you have to remember this from the K-mart at Bird and Galloway behind and accross the isle from the service desk where they sold the Icee's and Popcorn.

        3/$1 for the long ones ... long time ago ... man I loved those things.

          Soggy, wilted lettuce, mustard, shaved onion and pickle chips. All melded together to give it that one of a kind taste!. id buy 'em at the end of the nite for a dime each or a sack of ham sandwiches for a quarter!
          I loved getiing the baked ham with the thick coat of gelatin on top!
          Yum, Yum eat 'em up

            I used to like those. Now I wouldn't touch them if they were still 39 cents.

              That's them, except I remember them as being refrigerated in a self serve cooler along with the round bun ham things! Loved those buggers! (Love the meat so thin analogy)

                  A nice recipe but I don't remember the K-Mart Subs having Banana Peppers in them.

                    They did in my neighborhood K-mart. Maybe it was regional.

                      I grew up in a small town in Western PA.
                      Banana Peppers would have been a foriegn object that no one had ever seen much less eaten! Heck, we rarely had Bananas!
                      Maybe that's where Subway got the idea------- from K-Mart!

                        I worked at both Kresge and K Mart in Texas...as I remember the meat was Salami, the Ham that was sold in the deli, and Spiced Lunch Loaf.  Shredded Lettuce...The tomato slices I know were on the deluxe sandwiches...We did not have Banana Peppers or Jalapeno's in the Grill or Deli area until Nacho's arrived...
