    I made just the one sandwich which the DM and I shared to have with our soup for lunch on this cold rainy day and we thoroughly enjoyed. As I cooked mine in the sandwich press I assembled the sandwich as a whole and toasted in the press therefore buttering the inside of the bread - delicious with spicy lentil soup I had in the freezer ready to heat up. Thank you Debbwl, made for Everyday A Holiday.

    Loved the flavour combination here! Unfortunately we couldn't get sourdough bread but it would be even better with the sourdough. A brilliant sandwich- thanks Debbwl!

    Messy and delicious is darn right! Very easy to put together and so tasty. I had chicken tenderloins on hand, so I just butterflied one for each sandwich to get the nice flat piece to work with - worked great! Thanks for sharing!
