Little Abude’s sandwich sensation

My middle child, little Abude, loves to make sandwiches. Sometimes his sandwiches are eggs, chicken strips, topped with salsa and fries, other times they are more common, but they are never dull. He whipped this one up a few years back and it continues to be a favorite so I want to share it with you! This sandwich can easily go vegetarian, omit turkey, add more veggies and there you have it!
