Notes









Tips

Expert Tips

  • If you can't find sun-dried tomato mayonnaise, mix up your own by combining 1/3 cup mayo with about 2 tablespoons chopped sun-dried tomatoes. Regular mayonnaise works just fine as well.
  • To keep food safe while grilling, always separate uncooked foods from cooked foods, and each other, too.
  • Pair these hearty sandwiches with an Italian-style pasta salad, homemade or from the deli, or maybe a bagged Caesar salad.
