Expert Tips

Sun-dried tomatoes packed in olive oil and herbs add wonderful flavor to any dish. We add even more flavor by cooking the pepper mixture in some of the flavored oil. Look for jars of these tomatoes near the Italian foods or in the produce department.

To toast the buns, place them, cut sides up, on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375ºF. for 8 to 10 minutes or until toasted. Spread mayonnaise on the toasted buns before filling the sandwiches.
