This sandwich is definitely better (as the previous reviewer said) than the sum of its parts. The secret is the pepper. When you think you've got enough add a little more. I lived in Mt Airy for the years abd it's the only place I've ever been able to find them. Snappy Lunch used to make a good one.
I served this as suggested on buns with mayo, creamy coleslaw, and tomatoes, and aside from the fact that we are big Andy Griffith fans, we really enjoyed this recipe! Even my picky toddler kept asking for more. The description that it is more than the sum of its parts is definately accurate!
