My husband and I positively love sandwiches for lunch. Because of his work schedule, he is often home at lunch, so we get creative with our sandwich choices. However, sometimes we want to go back to our roots and have a classic sandwich. That is what this one is.
With this much ham, pork, cheese, and quite a bit of mayo all stuffed in a sweet bread roll, this one makes us so happy! We absolutely love this one and make it so often because of how delicious it truly is! Check out what our friends over at Creole Contessa had to say about this:
“This sandwich is delicious and I always make it for the family after the holidays with leftover pork roast.”
With Easter coming up, be sure to save those leftovers for this recipe!
