Very delicious recipe. I left out the lettuce/sprouts and used a whole wheat french bread. We had them with a couscous salad. I will make these again for sure.
Made this with half of a turkish pide, WHAT a terrific, healthy feed! Also include fresh turkey dice, This recipe is VERY nice!
WOWEE! These are DELICIOUS and HEALTHY! I used cracked wheat sourdough and only about 2tsp of olive oil. I used creole seasoning on the saute and the bean sprouts option. We enjoyed these with a Vegan lentil soup for a nice Vegetarian meal. I will be making these again! Made for Photo Tag.
