Expert Tips

  • This sandwich was inspired by a dish that was featured at Uglesich’s, a restaurant where New Orleans’s chefs lunch.
  • Po’ boys are large sandwiches named for their original price: Sold for a nickel at New Orleans streetcar stops, even a “poor boy” could buy one.
  • Po’ boy, hero, hoagie and submarine are all names for similar large sandwiches of meat, cheese and vegetables piled on French or Italian bread.
  • Shrimp are sold by count, which refers to the number of shrimp in a pound.
  • Kettle-fried potato chips and slaw from the deli are tasty accompaniments for po’ boys. Praline pecan ice cream is a nice and easy finish for a New Orleans-inspired menu.
