    I don't eat meat so made these with Tofurkey. I thought the combination of flavors was great. My daughter didn't love the onions or the gorgonzola.

    I made these for my husband and I using leftover Thanksgiving turkey- I didn't put the onions on mine and he didn't put the mustard sauce on his, we both loved it. He toasted his and put ranch on it. Very good.
