The photo posted by Derf really sold me on this sandwich, and I have to say it was delicious! The funny thing is my sauce turned out dark tan in color and I think it was because I used baby portabella mushrooms. I used gruyere Swiss and virgina baked ham. I also constructed the sandwich a little different then specified as I used two torpedo rolls which I cut so they had a pocket in them where I layered the ham and cheese. Then I topped the mushroom onion sauce on top, and more cheese on top of that. Thanks for posting! Made for Billboard tag. :-)
