Caramelized onions, mushrooms and two types of cheese make these my favorite sandwiches. I invented them for a last-minute picnic by combining items I had on hand. They've been a hit ever since. -Lynda Clark of Spokane, Washington

"This recipe was easy to make and was delish. I made it both with and without the chicken and loved both. I also think this would be great as an appetizer on a melba toast just scaled down a bit. Thank you Lynda for a great recipe! I will be making it again"
