I got this recipe from an old Georgia Boy that was transplanted in Tennessee, he is 72 and says he grew up on this sandwich.

I too am from NC. I grew up eating these sandwiches. You have posted the "PREMO" Southern delicacy! I have to make an admission here, and I wouldn't do it everywhere. I puposely buy white bread for this sandwich.....LOL. These sandwiches are just not at their most with the multi-grains I eat with everything else. I don't know why, other than nostagia, that this should even make a difference, but it does! So, during the summer I do keep a loaf of white bread around. OK, I don't think I can be totally condemned for that....HUH?
