Spicy Pork Baguette Bites Recipe

Here's an interesting twist on mini cocktail sandwiches. Lime mayonnaise provides a cool counterpoint to the nicely spiced pork, and toasted baguette slices contribute the crunch.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 20 min. + marinating Bake: 20 min. YIELD:24 servings


  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
