Potluck Pockets

My husband taught me how to make these fun tasty sandwiches. They take little time to prepare, and we enjoy them all through the year. They don't last long on a buffet. -Debbie Jones, California, Maryland

    Thought this would be good open face on top of the pita bread.....did not care for the sauce - too vinegary and a strange mix of spices with the Worchestershire and soy sauce. Won't make this again.
