    Tee Lee's Note:

    The original recipe calls for eating these sandwiches cold, but we prefer to grill them on our George Foreman grill or in a frying pan. Hot or cold, it is a quick way to make a tasty meal! Perfect for those hot summer days or when you're just in a hurry. Low-fat cheese and dressing can lighten up the recipe without sacraficing flavor.

      These were delicious!! I substituted cheddar cheese for provolone and skipped the parsley coz i didnt have any on hand. These were very yummy, we cut ours in little triangles so they were easier to eat. Will be made again often!
