Did you know that in Poland many Polish people like to go out and enjoy some Zapiekanka & have a laugh. Zapiekanka is basically an opened face sandwich of a long bread roll – it looks great and it’s super easy to make. With mushrooms, cheese, meat and vegetables topped off with a red sauce – you can’t go wrong. When you order it in a restaurant the waiter actually brings the sauce to you in a pitcher and they pour it on top. Something you'd like to try?
