Poor Boy Sandwich

"This is pretty close to the original poor boy. I made just a couple of small modifications. The addition of peperoncinis was a must as all sandwiches taste better with them on it. The Poor Boy Sandwich originated in the French Market in 1922 during a streetcar strike. The Martin Bros came up with a 40 inch long sandwich on a French Roll. The coffee stand was packed with locals buying the sandwich. Whenever one of the striking street car workers came up to the stand Benny Martin would say “Here comes another poor boy” and he would give them a sandwich for free."
