Did You Know...
A sandwich press is a long-handled, metal, clam-shell-type holder that can be used over a campfire or grill. There is a small electric appliance also called a “sandwich maker” or “sandwich press” that can do the same task right in your kitchen.
Lighten your load whenever possible! Purchase pizza sauce in plastic squeeze bottles, which won’t break and are easy to store.
