    Sharon123's Note:

    Paula Deen says this is the most requested sandwich at their restaurant in Savannah, Georgia! Look and see why! Note: The calories are so high because the total amount of dressing is firgured in. When you eat this you only use a small amount of dressing!

      Made as written and preparing three sandwiches (3 asparagus spears each sandwich) and reducing the amount of dressing yield by one third. Delicious! Subbed aged white cheddar for the Monterey Jack. Thanks, Sharon! Made for Veg Tag/April. Will make again soon!

      Comment only: regarding teh calories. I think the calculator is giving calories for the whole dressing recipe and of course you wouldn't use it all on one sandwich! I think I'll be making this for lunch today!

      I will not be making it till later this week, but wanted to comment about the calories. It seems the calorie amount has included the full recipe of the dressing.
