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

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
