Delicious! I ate something like this during the Christmas break so I was really pleased to find this recipe. Very clear instructions: the only changes I made were to use 3 cloves of minced garlic and half an onion, also minced, instead of the garlic salt and to add some parmesan to the breadcrumbs; and I sprinkled some chopped fresh basil on top of the sandwiches when they were served. Thanks for sharing this delicious brunch/snack recipe!
