"Loved them! I made two SMALL changes, I used regular fresh ground pepper and thick Texas Toast. Delicious!"

"This was a tasty and easy dinner, and a good way to use leftover turkey. We used wheat bread instead of white and left off the bacon. It was still good, but we will probably use the bacon next time!"

"We have a sandwich like this where I work and since I work the night shift I'm never there to eat it. This was better than the one from work. I did increase the cheese for a bit more flavor and instead of Italian bread I used croissants. SO GOOD!!!!"
