Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Look for garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese in the dairy case. It's available in several flavor variations, so experiment to discover which one you like best in this recipe.
  • tip 2
    Add a New Orleans twist by sprinkling sliced pimiento-stuffed green olives over the sandwiches to give them the taste of the Crescent City's famous muffuletta sandwich.
