"These sandwiches have a great flavor. I used the cast iron skillet I fried my bacon in (after removing most of the grease) to grill my sandwiches. This made the bacon taste stand out even more. I think any type of mushroom will work for this recipe. I had canned mushrooms on hand to use for my sandwiches."
