Mushroom Swiss Cheeseburger Stuffed French Bread

This is the type of food that my guy Steve really loves – hearty, meaty, carb-laden stuff. This may have a connection to why we’ve but put on a little “fluff” over the winter! lol We’re both considering doing a low-carb diet to get prepared for spring and summer so I guess we’ll see how that goes. In the meantime, here’s the giant sandwich that Steve made last Friday so that it was waiting when I got home from teaching my printmaking class. Really good! Perhaps to make it low carb we’ll have to spoon the filling over cauliflower rice or something. What do you think?


Sorry we only took pics with Steve’s cell. Not the best but you get the idea. 🙂
