If you’re ever craving those delicious, wonderful Middle Eastern spices in a sandwich, but you don’t want to have to get in the car and drive to the nearest (assuming there is one within driving distance 🙂 ) Middle Eastern restaurant, then this recipe is for you. You can have all those same wonderful Middle Eastern flavors at home pretty easily. The recipe is a cinch to put together and the taste is incredible.

I’m not claiming that this is the most authentic version. I AM claiming that this is a darn tasty one!!!
