Sherri Williams


I made this dish for one of my homeowners. They were having having a dinner party for some friends. The photo is an individual portion for my tasting. I posted the photo of this dish on my FB. My friend Mary thought it was a sandwich...thus the name. It really does look like the perfect little potato sammie. LOL I hope you enjoy. This a the perfect side dish for Easter.
