These sandwiches are so yummy. They are definitely something I make often because my family loves them. Recipe is from Family Circle.

I made it exactly as it said. It was good... I enjoyed it. The whole family ate it just fine. I think less time in the cooker would have actually been better. I couldn't slice it because it feel apart... Which is fine we shredded it up a bit. The sandwiches needed more flavor so we added BBQ sauce to ours and cheese on our 5 year olds. On the second one that I had I added mayo as well.. Seems weird but it is legit. Go pretty tastes, and make sure you top the sandwiches with lots of peperchini. Yum
