    I absolutely loved this recipe! My husband, (my food critic) commented that he loved these so much, that he made two more sandwiches for himself later that evening! The recipe was easy to follow, and didn't take too much time. The prep was easy as well! I added a little red onion to mine, and it was delicious! I have to say that I enjoyed all of the recipes that Campbell's Kitchen has to offer!
