This is an amazing sandwich that I know you will love. I used a crusty artisan bread and made my own spicy hummus sandwich spread. After spreading on my hummus, I added sliced apples, tomatoes, grilled portabello mushrooms, Mezzetta roasted red peppers, Mezzetta jalapeno stuffed olives, basil leaves & romaine lettuce. Talk about flavor plus in a sandwich!! You could also grill this or put it in your panini maker, just add the lettuce after your sandwich is done cooking. See picture below for this same sandwich panini style. I hope you will give this sandwich a try because I know you and your family with love it.
