Sammie Challenge for St. Patrick's Day was to make a sammie with the colors of the Irish, white and orange. In trying to make it an authentic Irish dish, I have incorporated bacon and cabbage into my creation. Couldn't get a picture this time, the batteries in my camera gave out & the cell phone has no more space & I didn't have time to delete anything to get picture will have to come later! But it tasted really good and my only problem was that I hadn't doubled the recipe to make more!
