    “Yummy breaded sandwiches my mom made during ramadan. Can be served as an appetizer, but use a small cutter. Use different fillings if you like, next time i plan to try salami, cheese and salsa .. can be fried, baked or broiled, whatever you prefer ..”

  • Reviews

  • “This is wonderful if you deep fry the sandwiches.They remind me of an empanada, but are so much easier. I have made similar sandwiches using biscuit dough, but sliced bread is a much cheaper alternative.I used rotisserie chicken, mayonnaise, steamed broccoli, colby jack cheese, onion, garlic, and salt and pepper.They came out amazing.By the way, I crimped the edges together using a fork to seal in the ingredients before dipping in the egg wash and crumbs.I also added a dash of seasoning salt to the bread crumbs, just for added flavor.Yummmmmmy!!!”

  • “We used leftover shredded BBQ chicken as well as the other filling suggestions.I liked them and hubby LOVED them.I knew he would as soon as I saw the recipe.He is a major carb addict.I do think I would skip the biscuit cutter next time and just cut off the crusts as another reviewer did.A bigger size sandwich would be nice, and less work for more results is nice too.I would like to know more about if/why this is special for Ramadan.Did you have them other times too, or just then?Thanks for the yummy idea.”

  • “this was a great little snack forsuhur (sarri) i made this the other morning for my family before sun came up, they loved it. This might not make a great meal but its perfect to breaf your fast during iftar and the best for suhur. I give it a 5/5 thanks.”

  • “Oh my God this is so good, I can’t believe that someone would give it less than 5 stars. Thanks for sharing”

  • “Nice and easy. I made these with a chicken salad and sliced tomato filling. I just trimmed the crust off the bread and didn’t cut them into rounds. I left out the lettuce because I assumed it would gen a bit limp.After making them I can see I was probably wrong about that.These sandwiches are quite filling.Next time….and their will be a next time…I’ll make one per person.This is a lovely technique for making any sandwhich a bit special. Thanks.This is a sure winner.”

  • “I made with chopped turkey, tomatoes and mayo.They were pretty good, and I will definitely make circular grilled sandwiches in the future.They seemed to fry more uniformly without the crusts.It was fun to try, but I don’t think I will be breading the sandwiches in the future.”

  • “I made these last Ramadan and they are perfect for iftar. It is also good with beef soujuk, carmelized onions, and cheddar cheese.”

  • “Najwa, my mom made these for Ramadan as well,used all differant fillings.Seeing this recipe made me want to bring the memories back,so i made them for her and she was so happy. I loved this :)”

  • “Great sandwich and crispy! I made it now with different combinations of meats and also made them using cheese. Many thanks for posting!”

  • ” wow how didi miss your site? i you like to bake guys come here thanks for posting thisi love grilled sandwiches and this is a good one”

  • “I enjoy toasted sandwiches, but these are so very different.I tried the original and have also substituted turkey and cranberry sauce for the chicken and mayonnaise, as well as ground ham and mustard.And they are quite good eaten cold and make an excellent picnic item for children or adults.”
