This recipe came from Gourmet Magazine back in 1994. I have made this many times for get togethers, especially when there are kids. They seem to like it alot. Even adults give good comments about the sandwiches. This recipe can easily be doubled to serve more and held on low heat in a crock pot for several hours. I find the flavor is superior to the usual envelope mix most use.
