My German hubby loved the sandwich...he said it was worth a Michelin star...(I'm not sure of that)...this was so easy to toss together...I cut the recipe in half and now he has leftovers for tomorrows lunch...I added about a tablespoon of German stone mustard onto the toasted bread...and served chips on the side...he didn't even ask for a pickle...made for "FYC" tag game...

Great sandwiches! We skipped the wine and the caraway seeds - subbed in some beef broth for some fantastic brats! Served with coleslaw and chips! A great meal that is also fun to eat. Thanks for sharing!
