This is my husband's recipe. It is so simple and so delicious that I had to share it with you! I have added some optional instructions at the end. I have not tried the optional ingredients myself, but they sound like they would be very good. Try it and please let me know. I would appreciate the feedback. I have made this as a sandwich on buttered wheat bread with american cheese, alf alpha sprouts and sunflower seeds. Delicious!!! Enjoy!!
