Venison, Roasted Peppers, and Goat Cheese Sandwiches

By: Stacy Lyn Harris 

Everyone seems to be on-the-go these days, and while sandwiches are the perfect food for that, THIS is the sandwich that you really need to pay attention to. A sandwich.  A simple, delicious sandwich. Really, does anything more need to be said? I think you’d be hard-pressed to find anyone on Earth who would not enjoy this meal.

Our family loves to devour this sandwich with homemade sweet potato fries while watching Alabama football!
