Top Review by Deb G

I followed the recipe except I left the slices of bread whole because I was preparing it for lunch for DH and me. I used only 4 pieces of bread so we each had 2 open-faced sandwiches. We both loved them and will definitely have frequently. Served with tossed salad. Thanks for posting!
