MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 3, 2013

I made this and added a balsamic glaze to one side of the bread. Turned out very good! I also made one that had avocado on it and will do that again as well. This is a fresh sandwich that is perfect for a summer afternoon.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 23, 2013

This was just too much for both my husband and I. I guess you could say it was overpowering with all that bread and cheese. I'm surprised because I love all the ingredients. Maybe it would be better to use a different kind of bread or less cheese?

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 10, 2013

I did make it with Swiss instead of Mozz since that was what we had on hand.
