This is a great fall off the diet sandwich...I have done so good as of late, so I decided I'd make something to satisfy my cravings, and reward myself, and yum!...did I ever!!...this sandwich was delicious! Ooey Gooey fresh mozzarella, lots of mushrooms, garlic and onions sauteed in wine, topping a nice juicy hot sausage patty... I could only eat half, but could have eaten the whole was so good...great comfort sandwich... Enjoy!
