The Harvey Sandwich

"Remember the movie about a 6 ft. tall white rabbit named "HARVEY" starring Jimmy Stewart? Well, as good as rabbit meat is, this does NOT have any in it. As-a-matter-of-fact, there's NO meat in it at was however inspired by the movie. One of the leading charecters had this sandwich & it sounded so good I just HAD to try's now one of my favorites!!! So simple to make & very few ingredients! (Oh, BTW....Harvey was a POOKA.)"
