Saturday's are always busy at my house. Quick and easy, this sandwich, some chips and a piece of fruit are a quick meal on a busy day. This is a great recipe, the family loves these and I can easily change the flavor from time to time depending on the meat and sauces I use. This recipe gives a nice variety of choices while still following the basic recipe.
