"VERY GOOD!!!! I only made 1 sandwish for lunch to try it and believe me, I WILL BE MAKING THIS AGAIN!!! I wouldn't change a thing but I think you would definitely have to use more olive oil (I added as much as I felt I needed and used at least 1 tbsp just for the 1 sandwish (4 servings)). I think this would be good if shredded rotisserie chicken or real bacon bits were added too!"
