I haven't tried you're sandwich yet, that's why the 1 star. Wondering how this can be dor a diabetic when the carbs are so high? 28g that's way more then your daily requirement.

I did not really care for this recipe; but in all fairness I did make a lot of changes. I used ground sirloin instead of turkey and only bought 1 pound. I'm sure based on the other reviews that it would be much better if prepared as written.
