"I bought a local, sliced cracked wheat bread to use for these sandwiches. I also used homemade pickles for these. I thought they came out really good. I just used pre minced garlic and didn't cook it before hand, I just added it to the mayo. The only big change I would make is using less mayonnaise. I thought it was too much, in the future I would do less mayo and maybe put mustard on half. Overall, they were really good and super easy to make."
