Sometimes I make a tuna melt out of this sandwich and serve warm. The tuna salad spread is also yummy as a dip. —Kimberly Stewart, Omaha, Nebraska

    Not impressed. I made this for a potluck and had a heck of a time cutting it with out making a mess even with toothpicks to hold it together and then noticed that no one could eat the entire piece, most people had to remove one side of the bread in order to make it manageable. Additionally it didn't taste that fantastic and was the highest calorie item there. I'm glad I made it, but I won't make it again.
