Sandwiches are a staple for busy families as they’re so easy to put together and are simply delicious! This Italian grinder sandwich made with Furlani® garlic bread, definitely won over our tastebuds and is worth a try. It’s full of flavour and super juicy. Did you know the term ‘grinder’ originally came from tough Italian bread used to make the sandwich in which one would have to ‘grind’ their teeth to bite through all the layers of the sandwich?
