Yummy-ola! We made a couple of changes: French bread worked great, and we added some mayo. We liked it, but I think it needed something else, to zip it up ... maybe some Feta cheese? We'll make it again with something else and see! The kids thought smushed sandwiches were very interesting!!! I'll use my waffle iron next time and see what they think then! :-)
