greek hero recipe

sandwichDiana found this recipe on tasteofhome.com. This week we decided not to purchase meat to cook and the recipes have been mostly fantastic. This one is a meatless greek hero. Annabeth, Diana, and I consumed this monstrous sandwich with asparagus baked and drizzled with balsamic vinegar. Luckily my mom had already made some hummus so we were set on that front. Next time we’ll definitely try to make our own. Supposedly it’s pretty easy.
