Notes

The Spicy Sicilian Sandwich Bites are delicious dipped in a chimichurri sauce.

Leftovers will keep for a few days and can be warmed in the oven (crispier) or microwave (soft).

The great thing about this recipe is you can substitute whatever you want for the sandwich "stuffing". And you really don't need to measure everything. Just be sure to taste the mix along the way to ensure a harmony of flavors!
