Wonderful! I've made toasted cheese sandwiches all my life but the veggies and chili powder make them far more interesting. I prefer using whole grain bread. Read More

These didn't have a lot of flavor and I was disappointed in the overall taste. They were definetely crunchy but just bland. Read More

These are very nutritious and delicious and satisfying a fell good food I should add! I spread 1 tsp Grey Poupon on 1 slice of 100% whole wheat bread with 1/4 cup of mixture (I didn't add cheese to mixture because im refrigerating the veggie mixture) then topping off with 1 slice of colby cheese. This is a grand total of 140 calories I had 2 slices for lunch! It's yummy im using the rest of the veggie mixture in my eggs for breakfast! Thank you for the recipe!!! Read More
