I was just about done with my porchetta roast but I made sure to save some to try one last sandwich, inspired be a readers comment describing a porchetta sandwich with caramelized onions and arugula. After a quick search of the web I found a few variations of sandwiches with those ingredients and after picking and choosing ingredients I ended up with one that sounded excellent. This sandwich combines the moist and juicy porchetta with the sweet and tangy balsamic onion marmalade that I had just made with tasty melted asiago cheese, peppery arugula and hit of grainy mustard. Although the previous sandwiches had been beautiful in their simplicity, this sandwich was definitely a winner with its more complex flavour combinations that were definitely amazing. What a great way to finish off the last of the porchetta!
