This made for a wonderful Sunday brunch! I put this all together last night and today I baked it for about 10 minutes more than directed, as I usually do with my oven. The recipe was increased so that 4 of us would each get a sandwich. It was filling and very tasty and I really liked the slight kick of Dijon. Made for my adopted chef for PAC 2011. Thanks nortocbaking101! :)
