Porchetta Sandwiches

Porchetta Sandwich with Braised Rapini

Now that I had my porchetta , an Italian style slow roasted pork, it was time to start enjoying the leftovers! Given that my introduction to porchetta was by way of sandwich, I moved right on to the sandwiches and it is a good thing that the roast was so large as I have been enjoying different variations of porchetta sandwiches all week. I started out with simple version consisting of the oh so moist and tender porchetta in a soft and crusty bun along with a dollop of grainy mustard and a side of braised rapini, or broccoli rabe.

Porchetta Sandwich with Braised Rapini

From there I thought, why serve the braised rapini separately when I could just put it right in the sandwich and with the rapini in the sandwich I figured that a dab of creamy mayonnaise spiked with a drop of so of truffle oil would work wonders. Adding cheese like some freshly shaved parmigiano reggiano also works amazingly well in a porchetta sandwich. It seems like you just cannot go wrong starting with the base of tasty porchetta in your sandwich and the sky is the limit to what you can add to make each sandwich unique!

looks tasty, but then good porchetta usually is. There are times when I'm walking by a porchetta stand at a market here in Abruzzo and even if it's breakfast time I get a porchettaa sandwich.
