There is times when a great sandwich is all the food you need. I have nights like that a lot. That's why I always look for a new way to make a good sandwich. Feel free to use other deli meats and cheeses.

Though I didn't eat the completed sandwich myself (I tasted the ham and onions with a little of the mustard), my dh gave me the "thumbs up". I love it when he gives me the "thumbs up" because I know we have a keeper! Thank You Ashhhhhhhhhha!!!
