    Did not have golden onion soup mix so tried herb and garlic (Lipton). I loved the flavor of the mustard - used honey mustard - and butter for the sandwich spread. However, I used regular white sandwich bread and when I dipped (fairly quickly) it got soaked all the way through. In cooking, perhaps the heat was too high but the inside of the bread (next to the ham & cheese) was still soggy. I'll try cooking slower over lower heat next time. Great taste if not a little drippy.
