What we learned

1. You may want to slightly lessen the salt depending on your preference.

2. If your stove typically runs hotter than most, turn the temperature down just below medium. The first test sandwich came out a little bit too crispy (burnt).

3. The recipe makes enough for four sandwiches but depending on your ingredients, you can make them stretch to make more.

4. After making our eighth sandwich, we ran out of cream cheese and made the sandwich without that component. It still tasted delicious.

5. A good blender works in a pinch if you don’t have a food processor. You can also dice up your cheese really well and hand mix. Just make sure your cream cheese is at room temperature.

I’ll see you after our next PopLab project! – Miss Rita
