Expert Tips

You can use almost any bread you have on hand for this sandwich. We've called for sourdough or Vienna because these are firm textured and grill well. Other good choices include Italian bread, large French bread slices or country French bread slices.

These sandwiches are great for lunch or supper. For lunch, serve them with cut-up fresh vegetables and fruit. For supper, add deli potato salad and pickles.
