Laurie's I Got This Sammie

Sherri Williams


I had a friendly competition with some friends. They were asked to name the ingredients of this sandwich I created. Whoever guessed the most ingredients would be declared the winner and awarded a gift and have the sandwich named after them. This was so much fun. Keep in mind that this was all done via facebook. They had to guess by the photos of the sandwich I posted. It was a close race the whole time. Laurie Sanders was the winner. She is the only one guessed tomatoes. Everyone else thought the red stuff was red peppers. By the way, the cheesy compound butter melted on a juicy steak or veggies, is heaven on earth! I hope that you will try this recipe and and come up with a fun food game with family and friends. Happy Cooking! sw:)
