Sandwich,sandwich… not the american subway-style one but the “original togolese sandwich“,there are 2 types:beef and fish

Here is a little sneak peek of the fish sandwich i made few days ago

In Togo you can pre order batch of sandwiches for special occasion such as anniversary,wedding,graduation parties,funerals etc.

They deliver the “good stuff” at your door step or at the place you want it delivered,oh yeah!

I still have those memories and i love sharing memories,that is just the way i am.

Nobody ever wanted to give away the recipe of making this because you don’t want the entire population selling it of course.

Thankfully i have this sweet friend of mine,she is my mentor i can say.Thank you Solim A.

Today im posting this recipe because of her so i thought it will be nice to speak out her name,she knows herself๐Ÿ˜Š

I am sure if you choose the right ingredients and don’t overcook it you will find yourself making this every month๐Ÿค—

Note:this is no a fat free food it is very oily and it can soak your bread so i am doing the 50% less fat version of this sweetness, we’ve got to stay healthy right amazing readers?

So a yes it is!
