 Big Sandwich
One look at this impressive sandwich and your family and friends will know their taste buds are in for a treat. I have served it many times for casual lunches and suppers. The tall layers prompt people to ask how they're supposed to eat it. I encourage them to simply dig in and enjoy! -Margaret Yost, Tipp City, Ohio
