Reviews for Stuffed Sourdough Sandwiches
"How much meat mixture is a serving? I'd like to divide the mixture into four equal packets."
"Very tasty, and I love that you can freeze some for later!"
"These were delicious. I made them exactly as written except I left out the mushrooms."
"Couldn't find any sourdough hoagie rolls not already cut. So we used the cut ones instead. Super easy to make. I thought it would be spicy but it wasn't. I like spice, but my boyfriend can't handle too much. He really like it. He said he could eat the meat mixture even without the bread."
