"I added a few tweaks. I sliced up some apple and threw that on there too. I used spicy mustard and skipped the poppy seeds. I also used Kings Hawaiian hamburger buns. DELICIOUS. My husband was drooling a bit. This was a great quick dinner! I served this with a cold pasta salad. I will be making this again!"

"I have been making these since the early 70's. Do not eliminate any of the ingredients and prepared mustard is the "yellow kind for those of you that do not know. Great sandwich and I have yet to meet the person who doesn't like them. Simple and easy to make."

"These are great sandwiches. They are simple to make and have great flavor. The buttery spread takes them over the top."

"Pretty good lunch! I used light ingredients and these were yummy and easy for a Weight Watchers lunch with the rest in my mom's freezer ready for her to make while recuperating from an upcoming surgery. I haven't baked the frozen ones yet, but I would recommend cooking the fresh sandwich a bit longer than 10 minutes to heat more through the middle. Good with plain mustard; I used the full 1/2 cup."
