My grandma used to make these sandwiches for us kids when we were little. Not the healthiest dish in the world, but we loved them! They are made in child-sized portions, one or two pieces per child. - Grandma made them open-faced to save on bread. This is how grandma made them; use seasonings of your choice. If you want to add cheese, be sure to top sandwich with it AFTER cooking. *The picture is of grandma on her 100th birthday with one of her four great-great-great-great grandchildren.
