Delicious! DH and I both loved this recipe. The grocery didn't have round sour dough loaves but that's the only change I made. Thanks for sharing.
My DH made this yesterday afternoon all by himself, and he absolutely found it so easy to prepare, and equally as wonderful to devour. He only made one sandwich, used the inside grill to warm it, and it was just perfect. This is very easy to just reduce the amounts, and worked perfectly for him. Thanks so much, Lainey! Will make again as this is so great for using leftover breads, and fresh vegetables.
