"The butter spread only makes enough for four sandwiches. As soon as I made it, I saw that it would not be enough, so I spread it as thin as possible. The sandwiches themselves were good, but not leaps and bounds better than spreading pizza sauce on the halved baguette, adding cheese and mushrooms, and making them the easy way."
