Hot Hero Sandwiches

Laura Yoder


These sandwiches are great when you're entertaining a crowd. They can be made ahead and just pop them in the oven before you're ready to serve.

I love a great hero, and this did not disappoint. I like how this sandwich is heated, so the cheese gets nice and toasty. These would be great if you're having a crowd over. Or, if you're heading out for the night, make one for the hubby. All he'll have to do is heat it up. Easy peasy! The Test Kitchen
