"ABC sandwiches have been a favorite in our family of 8 since the recipe first appeared in TOH. I was unable to cook for 18 mos. due to a severe shoulder injury that gave me the use of only one arm & hand. My son, who took over cooking duties during that time, made these sandwiches quite often because they are easy to make & quick & soooo good! Wonderful any time of the year, but especially in the summer! I should mention that we leave out the walnuts, eggs, & tomatoes. Most of my kids were small when I started making these & they didn't like those ingredients. Recipe is excellent without them, but I have to admit that the walnuts DO sound good!"
