Sub sandwiches are a weakness of mine. I don’t know if I can pinpoint an exact time when I took to them — maybe childhood, maybe later — but at a certain point I came to truly appreciate the simple beauty of meat, cheese, and select condiments atop a roll. I love picking up the deluxe sub sandwich from my local large grocer, or picking one up at a deli. (I’ll also settle for Subway in a pinch.)
There are many important components to creating said sandwich, not the least of which is the bread. On that front, Aldi has improved over the years, offering both Italian and French bread. If you want really simple, though, Aldi also sells a garden variety deli roll.
L’Oven Fresh Deli Rolls are an Aldi Regular Buy. You can find them in stores all the time, typically among the other Regular Buy breads and rolls. They come in a bag of six rolls and currently cost $2.39, which comes out to right around 40 cents a roll.
Each roll has 2.5 grams of fat, 350 milligrams of sodium, and 33 grams of carbohydrates. As far as allergens go, these contain soy and wheat and may also contain eggs, tree nuts, and milk.
The rolls are precut, so all you need to do is take them out and open them up. The consistency reminds me of a hot dog bun, sporting a firm texture that isn’t necessarily too rough.
We liked these. We cooked up a Philly cheesesteak-style sandwich using Steak-umm Sliced Steaks and thought the rolls fit the bill. They held together and tasted pretty good. They’re not the most artisanal of breads, but they’re not half-bad.
L’Oven Fresh Deli Rolls are a solid, if unspectacular, bread for your favorite deli sandwiches. They’re precut and easy to use, are dense enough to handle the meats, and have a good taste and texture for the job. If you want something more exotic, Aldi sells that, too, but if you need a quick and easy roll for your lunch meat sandwich, this is worth checking out.
