“My mom used to make these fantastic sandwiches when I was a kid and I've always loved them. I've made a few alterations to her basic recipe, and it's so good. This sandwich can be altered in many ways, including the additon of some salsa to spice it up. Please share your thoughts if you prepare this sandwich, I'd love to hear your thoughts and I'd like to hear about any variations you might make.”
