World's greatest sandwich isn't a term anybody should throw around lightly and yet, here these crispy patties are. They look like fast food patties on the outside, but on the inside, they're soft and tender. Made from rice and sweet potato and coated in herbed breadcrumbs, then fried until crispy, they'll satisfy all your crunchy sandwich cravings. Top with traditional fare like pickles, lettuce, and ketchup or get creative with your own toppings.
