"I'll never forget the first time I made these. We used the occasion (St. Patrick's Day) to tell our 4 children that they were going to have a baby brother or sister. The girls said, "I want a sister", our oldest son said, "I want a brother" and the youngest brother said, "I want a sandwich!" He got a sandwich and we all got a good laugh. Sadly that pregnancy ended in a miscarriage, but I still have this fond memory of these sandwiches! And they were very good."

"These turned out very good and were a lot of fun for a St. Patty's party. They taste even better after sitting for a couple of hours and the tastes melding together."

"Shamrock sandwiches turn out so nicely, my family simply loves them. We save them for St. Patrick's Day and enjoy them with a beautiful Irish dinner."
