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."
