  • “MMMMmmmm, I used to eat this same sandwich years ago and it was so good to eat it again. I ate this on rye-pumpernickel bread. Loved the honey mustard-nice touch! Thanks Heather for posting this!”

  • “Excellent sandwich.I used seeded, whole-wheat rolls and the whole family ate them up.Good to take on a picnic too (keep ingredients in separate containers and make up sandwiches on the spot – they don’t get soggy).”

  • “This sandwich was colorful and delicious using fresh produce either from our garden or the farmers’ market. We tried whole wheat flax seed bread instead of rye and added a slice of Tillamook cheddar cheese to each sandwich. Recipe #13228 supplied the final touch. We will be making these again soon! Recipe added to Book #72132”
