Yummy Hero Sandwiches

Recipe by katie in the UP

I found this recipe in the Holiday edition of Pillsbury cookbook. (the small ones at the check out stand!) I've made some small changes to lower the fat content just a bit!

Top Review by Chef PotPie

This was so easy and so good for our weekly Friday Night Neighbor Get-Together. Everyone loved it, the crust cooked up just perfectly, and it cut easily. This would be a great potluck dish! It was also beautiful! I did use 1/2 pepper-jack cheese to give it a little bit of a kick, and I will keep it that way. Thanks, Katie!
