If you grew up in an Italian household you’ve heard about sangweeches. They’re the Italian Grandma’s version of a sandwich and I’m not talking a bologna or PBJ sanwich. This sandwich usually has an egg involved or a hot pepper or maybe capicola or mortadella!
Here’s Sandro’s latest version. It’s an egg, veggies and melted cheese on focaccia bread. You can use any kind of Italian bread but the focaccia makes this one special!
With most people on holiday tomorrow treat the family to a nice Sandro’s Special Sangweech in the morning. Remember to honor our those who have served our country!
