Fast and tasty sandwich with a special taste. DH loved it. I added about 1 tsp of Penzey's Fox Point seasoning. And it made a ton of filling. I did not end up putting all of it on my loaf of french bread.

I made this for my weekly salad club at work. I made this with one pound of imitation crap and also one lb of baby shrimp. I doubled all the ingredients since I was doubling the meat. I also added 2 cups of finely shredded cheddar (that is what I had on hand), but the cheese gave it some color. I severed this very cold on croissants and it was very good. I will make this part of my rotation. Thank you for sharing your recipe.
