Substitutions and Additions:

  • Butter Spread – These are best served fresh.  You can use butter instead of mayonnaise in this recipe if you prefer. 
  • Cheese – These sandwiches are great with any of your favorite type of cheese.
  • Oil – Use any oil with a high smoke point. Vegetable oil, canola oil, coconut oil or avocado oil will all work great in this recipe.
  • Bread – You can easily make this sandwich with your favorite type of bread. We used sourdough bread in this recipe, but Artisan bread is amazing or Texas Toast. We like a thicker bread when cooking on the griddle.
