don’t take orders, make them and serve them, if someone doesn’t like the cucumbers, they can pull them out themselves~
This is a great sandwich. It looks complicated but is easy and fun to make. The bread recipe is the easiest of all yeast breads. You just need to go through the list of ingredients and have everything sliced, laid out and ready, then it goes together fast.
these are 6 inch cast iron skillets, you can find them on the internet for under $10 each. They will last a lifetime~
Years ago, I bought a dozen 6″ cast iron skillets to bake these buns in and also for my hamburger buns. I live 45 miles from the nearest real Schlotzsky’s place so this recipe works for me. It is a great meal even when you are having company. They will remember it~
these make a big sandwich, it is a full size meal~
you can cut them in quarters and serve as company snacks~
