If you think that bread is too much for your diet. There is Jimmy John’s 13 Gourmet Veggie Club Sandwich Unwich. This version will give your sandwich in a lettuce warp rather than a pair of thick Italian wheat bread.

  7. Cover the avocado spread with another set of provolone cheese.
  8. Again, cover the provolone cheese with avocado spread thoroughly.
  9. Like before, you top the avocado spread with another pair of provolone cheese.

Easy But Flavorful Jimmy John’s 1 Pepe Sub Sandwich Recipe

Today, we will create another homemade Jimmy John’s 1 Pepe Sub sandwich recipe using simple ingredients that we can find in any food stores. Jimmy John as one of the best sandwich restaurant in the world, is famous for its fantastic and tasty menus. One of them is this number one Pepe Sub Sandwich. The combination of ham tenderness and savory provolone might persuade you to take another bite again and again.

Some of ingredients in this recipe are already available in several conventional food stores. However, you must be prepared to look harder for the sub sandwich bun and provolone sandwiches because they are only available in a few places. Nevertheless, you can still enjoy Jimmy John’s 1 Pepe Sub sandwich on wheat bread if you want without harming any other aspects of the taste. Without blabbering too much, let’s just get down to it.

  • 1 roll of Sub sandwich bun (in your preferable length)
  • 500 grams of smoke ham
  • 1 pack of provolone (Italian cheese)
  • 1 pack of fresh lettuce, thinly sliced
  • 1 large tomato cut
  • 1 tablespoon of pure mayonnaise
  1. Slice the sandwich into two parts, and use mayonnaise on each side.
  2. Slice the tomatoes into several layers and spread them on the first layer of sandwich.
  3. Add two pieces of Provolone on top of the tomato.
  4. Slice the smoked ham into a long layer and place it in several rolls above the provolone.
  5. Add two pieces of Provolone over the ham to keep the rolls intact.
  6. Top with a sprinkling of grated lettuce
  7. Cover by joining with bread.
  8. Voila! Your replication of Jimmy John’s 1 Pepe Sub sandwich is finished.

You can buy Jimmy John’s own sub sandwich bun with an affordable price and size to your liking. That way, you can make this recipe at any time you like. As for the provolone cheese, just start looking at Italian food stores because provolone cheese is basically Italian cheese. They are sold not in jars, but in baskets, formed as a pear-shaped chunk

If you are not a fan of mayonnaise, you can make Jimmy John’s 1 Pepe sub sandwich no mayo and replace it with a little mustard. That way, it feels a little familiar on your tongue. Now, you don’t need to be tired of waiting in line at Jimmy John’s. Thanks to this homemade Jimmy John’s 1 Pepe Sub sandwich recipe, you can swoop in anytime you want.

Step by Step Instructions (With Pictures)

Step 1: Prep Your Veggies

  • Lettuce: chop thinly and toss with a light coating of Italian vinaigrette.
  • Tomato: slice thin to medium thickness and cut slices in half.

Step 2: Prep Your Bread

Keep Things Neat: just like in the sandwich shop – don’t slice all the way through your bread – this will help hold your ingredients inside the sandwich.

Add Your Condiments: spread mayo on both sides of the bread. Jimmy John’s is very generous here, we suggest doing it to your preference.

Will it be awhile until you eat? Add butter first to prevent your condiments from making the bread too moist.

Want to kick it up a notch? Many salad dressings go well on sandwiches: ranch, thousand island, cucumber, etc. Depending who you are making it for, try out sriracha or tabasco mixed with mayo.

Step 3: Add Your Toppings

Strategize Your Layering! If you are packing your sandwiches to-go, we suggest going in this order to keep things from getting messy: cheese – tomato – meat – lettuce.

Is Jimmy John’s Keto-Friendly?

You can order an “unwich” and they will replace the bread with lettuce on any of their sandwiches. The good news for the keto and low-carb dieters: no Jimmy John’s Unwhich contains more than 10g of carbs[ * ].

If you want to have a look at the nutritional value for all of their unwich sandwiches, simply download their nutrition guide . Take a look at this screenshot.

To know more about their menus, go to the restaurant’s website Jimmyjohns.com and click the menu. Here you can view the complete menu.

The Blizzard is a staple at Dairy Queen—but the scariest option is the Royal Rocky Road Trip. This ice cream treat is made up of brownie pieces, peanuts, and cocoa fudge that are blended with vanilla soft serve and filled with marshmallow. That makes for a Blizzard that has more sugar than 15 Krispy Kreme Original Glazed Donuts.

Overall Ratings

I rate Jimmy John’s as low carb heavenly because they’ve actually given thought to accommodating low carb eaters by including lettuce-wrapped “Unwiches” on the menu. Lots of places will accommodate a lettuce-wrapped order, but few give it menu space and clever branding.

  • Low carb friendly – Yes.
  • Low carb entrees on menu – Yes. They have about 25 different Unwich options where the ingredients are pre-determined. You can also build your own.
  • Satiety of low carb entrees – Below Average. Depending on the sandwich(es) you select, you could be left hungry. I address this in the “What you should order” section.
  • Taste of low carb entrees – Excellent. The Unwich ingredients taste fresh and are expertly lettuce-wrapped to hold tight.
  • Price / value of low carb entrees – Below Average. I paid $19.47 for three Unwiches for my first order. After some menu research, I figured out how to order two filling Slim Unwiches for less than $10.
  • Ordering experience – Above Average. Because the Unwich is a recognized menu item, it’s no hassle to order a lettuce-wrapped sandwich.

My story in recipes

I love when people comment on my blog and I especially love it when readers send me their tips or suggestions on ways to improve my recipes. The blog post that has generated the most comments so far has been the post that I wrote about my attempt at making Jimmy Johns bread. (In case you didn't see it - you can check it out here.)

To make a long story short - it was kind of a disaster. It came out flat and pretty much nothing like the bagel like bread that you can get at Jimmy Johns.

After a LOT of suggestions and tips and comments from my faithful followers, I decided to revisit my Jimmy Johns recipe with the advice from my readers. This time around, it was MUCH better. I am so happy that I gave it another shot. Thank you to everyone who sent a comment or word of encouragement to inspire me to not give up on my dream of creating Jimmy Johns bread at home.

Jimmy Johns Bread (Take 2)
1 Tablespoon sugar
2 Tablespoons yeast
1/2 cup warm water

1/3 cup oil
3 cups all purpose flour
3 cups bread flour
3 Tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons salt
1 1/2 cups warm water

Combine sugar, yeast and warm water in mixing bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes.

Add remaining ingredients and knead until smooth and soft.

Divide into 12 pieces and roll into loaves.

Place on silpat lined baking sheet and let rise 45 minutes. Score with a sharp knife.

Can you tell that I was proud of my bread?

It made some mighty good sandwiches too.

Hungry yet? No need to run out to Jimmy Johns anymore - I'll make my own delicious sandwich bread from now on. Just kidding - I'll still go to Jimmy Johns - just because I love it.


Hi Amy! Nice recipe!
I made my bread today from the Jimmy Johns "take 1" recipe. It came out well (better than yours, sorry for the failure on your recipe :( ), but the taste wasn't quite the same as Jimmy Jones "french bread". The Jimmy Johns "take 1" recipe it's a delicious bread if you knead the bread really well and then let it rest for one and a half hour (I also thought it was a long time, but it worked well!), and I also added 1 extra tablespoon of soybean oil.
As soon as I go to the supermarket to buy more flour I'll try out the Jimmy Johns recipe "take 2". It looks amazing! Does it taste like the original "french bread" from the franchise? I live in Brazil and I can only remember the taste from my past days in US, as we don't have Jimmy Jones here!

I'm so glad that you tried the bread recipe. I definately prefer the taste of the second recipe to the first. It is the closest thing that I've found to the Jimmy Johns original bread recipe. I also prefer the bagel-like texture of the second recipe. I hope your second batch of bread turns out even better than your first. Bon Appetit!

Hey Amy. Thanks SO MUCH for gathering this information and posting this recipe (and the last one) on the Internet. I tried this recipe last weekend and had a few hiccups. First, I rolled the bread into things that looked more like fat breadsticks than loaves of Jimmy John's bread, and both my wife and son thought it was too sweet. I also think it could have been cooked a very small amount longer.

Next batch is rising right now. I used 2 Tbsp of sugar instead of 3, and I plan to bake for 20 minutes instead of 18. We'll see how it goes!

I hope that your second batch of Jimmy Johns bread turned out even better than your first. Thanks for stopping by the blog.

Second batch was AWESOME! Third batch is rising now. :)

After making this, today, I don't think it an exact Jimmy Johns bread, but it is so darned good. It's a keeper for sure. Thanks for the recipe.

Can you freeze baked bread and reheat for later? I've never baked bread before and eager to give this recipe a try. -rb

This is such a good recipe to start with if you do t have a lot of experience at bread making. And yes, I do freeze it on occasion. It's best if it's eaten the same day that its baked but it's still pretty tasty after its defrosted too. I wrap each loaf in plastic wrap and put them in ziplock bags before freezing them and that seems to work pretty well.

I dont have a stand mixer can I use this recipe in a bread machine?

R u referring to dry yeast in the recipe?

Hi made it today and they are really amazing! Very easy and soon tasty. Ifilled them with meatballs - grrrreat!

Just made this recipe and I loved it! Rolls were soft and had a nice crust. Thank you :)!

Can I use all purpose flour?

Yes, you can use all purpose flour.

I like to use canola oil but any vegetable oil is fine.

I know this is a super old thread, but can you explain your obsession with wanting a French style sandwich loaf to have the texture of a bagel? It makes be wonder about your experience with bagels. I would never describe JJ French bread interior crumb as like a bagel.

I was wondering about that myself, too. I do like JJ's bread, and that's why I ended up here, but I can't quite understand the description of the interior as being "bagel-like." At any rate, I'm going to try this recipe today, as it seems closest visually to their bread from any internet recipe I've found.

I hope that you were able to try my bread recipe. I would love to know how it worked for you. It's one of my favorite bread recipes.
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love to hear from followers.

Hi. Great recipe in regards to the ingredients used. Being a baker myself, I modified this recipe for you. The modifications are simple adjustments to the process mostly. Firstly, I added an additional 60 ml of water (1/4 cup). This of course could just have to do with my climate. Next, I would simply skip the yeast activation and mix all wet ingredients. Then, add salt and sugar (I used 2 T) and mix. Add dry ingredients and knead for 10 minutes once the mixture comes together. The resulting dough will then be gathered into a ball, lightly oiled, covered and allowed to ferment in the fridge overnight, about 24 hours. The fermentation adds immense flavor to the dough. The next day, pull the dough and remove from the bowl. Place on a counter and divide into 6 portions (about 240g each). Allow portions to warm. Once warmer, you will flatten the dough into a rectangle. Take and fold the top of the rectangle towards the middle and then the bottom upward over that. Press to seal and flip. Push the ends in and roll into a long roll shape. Place on baking sheet. Allow to proof for 45 minutes. These go into the oven at your described temp. Into the oven, throw 6-8 ice cubes on the bottom. These will melt and create steam. The resulting steam will give you that Jimmy John's classic chewy tough skin while maintaining a moist, perfect interior. I made your recipe in this manner and have to say that the taste and texture is practically spot on to that of Jimmy John's. I will be keeping this recipe in my index for the years ahead! Thank you for sharing and please let me know if you try my suggestions out. -D

Thanks for the updated recipe - I will give it a try and let you know how it turns out. Thanks for stopping by the blog.

Hello Amy, I hope you're well, it appears this has been abandoned. I too have been on an endless quest to recreate Jimmy John's Bread, and I stumbled upon your recipe. I owe you a debt of gratitude, as your hard work has been redeemed, it IS the recipe, I have officially deleted all my other roll recipes, this is absolutely incredible.

I want to also state that I also owe Unknown a debt, the person who provides the technique suggestions. It is indeed Amy's ingredients, and the Unknown commenter whose input I combined, and it is a FLAWLESS recreation of JJs bread. The 24 hour fridge ferment really does add and better the flavor. The steam does improve the outer crust, the center stays SO moist. Amy, you are brilliant, I seriously can't thank you enough for taking the time to share your journey with the world. You are still changing lives with your recipe, one at a time. And also to confirm for others who are lucky enough to find this thread, try Amy's recipe out of respect, she did the real work and had the passion, it is phenomenal. I highly recommend adding the techniques the Unknown commenter to Amy's recipe, it takes it over the moon, you'll never look anywhere again, I promise you, this IS IT!! Eternal thanks, Amy.

This bread is dangerously amazing, thank you for the recipe. It needs nothing else added to it or anybody else’s adjustments. You did a great job! I can not stopped eating it, perfect ingredients. Thank you again!

Thanks for all the hard work you put into these recipes Amy.
I want to go ahead and make this recipe but I confused at the ingredient list, why 2 types of flour? and a total of 6 cups for that matter.
Also why split up the sugar in 2 different lines for a total of 4 Tps?

It contains five types of meat — salami, capicola, turkey, roast beef, and ham — plus provolone cheese, onion, lettuce, tomato, mayonnaise, and dressing. If that’s got your mouth watering, CSPI is tutting at you: they want you to remember that this contains 29g of saturated fat and 7,720mg of sodium.

OK, you get the point. The CSPI really wants us to keep in mind that it’s in restaurants’ best interests to serve us giant portions of food to make us feel like we’re being treated like royalty, when it might not be in our best health interest to eat that much. However, living strictly by numbers can also lead to obsession over food, and even eating disorders. Keep your favorite treat foods as treats, so that when you do indulge, you can just enjoy them. And don’t invite the CSPI out for dinner.
