Yummy sandwich. I see this sandwich in a lot of restaurants in my hometown in Alaska, but I rarely see it in the lower 48. Sandwiches can be cut into 4 squares to serve at parties or brunches.

This was delicious! I added pickles to it and pressed it like a panini. It was a good companion for soup. I think I'll look for a way to reduce the calories though.
