Vietnamese rolls :

I love Bahn mi Vietnamese rolls and Coles sell the rolls without filling. So here are my creations. Split the rolls from the middle at the top but not through to the bottom of the roll. ( Do not slice them lengthways as a burger.) You get more filling. Spread top with mayo or pâté then top with lettuce and remaining ingredients.
