"I really don't require a recipe for a sandwich like this! Just looking in the refrigerator gives one so very many choices. The writer came up with a very tasty combination but why take up space in a publication with a basic ham and cheese sandwich with condiments. Everyone is caramelizing onions these days and that is the more difficult ingredient. I expect this magazine to guide me into more challenging recipes using that are quick and easy but that might appear to be not so on first read."
