I don’t even want to think about how many metric tons of the stuff I must have consumed through the [...]

I recommend using a strong dense wheat bread for this sandwich. It will hold up easier under the weight of the mushrooms and onions. I have also used muenster cheese along with the fontana and gruyere cheese. I also like to slow cook the mushrooms and onions in a beef stock until the stock has [...]
