    Sorry but prego does not take onions.just garlic, salt and butter, for butter not to burn I add a bit of olive oil.

    I like onions on mine Shemin, everyone is different I guess.

    What's the coarse salt for? To sprinkle on the sandwich? Just curious because I can't have salt if that's the reason it works for me! ☺ It doesn't specify on the recipe! BTW great job with the recipes Maria & Joe! Thank you for posting and making me hungry! Lol

    You can just leave the salt out Karen, thank you.
