Tennessee Mountaintop Subs

  • Author: 365 Days of Slow and Pressure Cooking
  • Yield: 4 half sandwiches or 2 large sandwiches 1x


Hoagie rolls with brown-sugared bacon, turkey, mayo, lettuce and tomato. The bacon is cooked in a special way that makes it taste so good!


  • 8 ounces thick sliced country-style bacon
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 2 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 2 long hoagie rolls
  • 8 slices of deli turkey
  • Lettuce, mayo, mustard and sliced tomato


  1. In a bowl combine the flour, brown sugar and pepper well. Add each piece of bacon into the mixture and press to coat the bacon. 
  2. Add bacon to air fryer on top of rack. You may need to cut bacon in half or cook the bacon in batches if it doesn’t fit. Air fry for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Use tongs to turn the bacon over and then air fry for 2 more minutes. If you don’t have an air fryer you can place a rack on top of a cookie sheet and then place the bacon on top of the rack. Bake in the oven at 400 degrees until brown and crisp, about 20-25 minutes (this will take a little bit of time with the thick cut bacon).
  3. Remove the bacon and place on a paper towel lined plate. Let grease absorb into the paper towel.
  4. Slather mayo and mustard on the inside of a hoagie bun. Pile pieces of turkey on top. Add lettuce, slice tomato and bacon. Eat and enjoy!
