If you want to make this a bit healthier, remove the yolk from some of the eggs, use light or low-fat mayo, and pile extra vegetables onto your sandwich!

Delicious!!! My stomach was grumbling while making this. I couldn’t wait for it to cool, so I had by first bit while it was still warm. I can’t wait to eat more after chilling, and all these yummy flavors are married.
