An Italian neighbor taught my mother how to make these when I was just a kid. It is the same recipe as what you have. Over the years, I have made variations. Try adding chopped black olives, pepperoni that has been diced and pulsed in a food process a couple of times, prosciutto finely chopped, or just about anything you can dream up. The basic recipe mixes well with just about anything. Just be sure it is chopped small enough. Thinking about adding chopped cooked bacon the next time. Enjoy!!

I've been making these, like this for many years. squeeze lemon on them before eating.
