Charlie’s Specials Recipe

This is one of my family’s favorite recipes, even though it’s “just a sandwich.”  Until about a month ago, I thought my mom had created this sandwich specifically for my dad and named it after him. My sisters, mom, and I were always labeled “Charlie’s angels,” so I just figured the sandwich was just following suit in the “Charlie’s *insert something here*” labeling game.

I was wrong.

Apparently, she got the name and recipe from someone else, but it doesn’t make it any less tasty and I still think about my dad every time I make these.

This sandwich has the perfect combination of crunchiness, cheesiness, and tangy zip. They are so fast, easy, and tasty!  And I only have to use one pan.  Less dishes is always a plus in my book!

I am not a big fan of mayo. So I may have to 50/50 mayo to sour cream. Thanks for sharing!

I make something very similar! Pretty much everything the same, but I make eggs over easy so that they "pop" when I scrunch down the sandwich. Sometimes I even fry up some salami too. So yummy! I bet yours is a lot more healthful than my version, though! Yum!
