Alida says, “I had some pulled pork leftover a few weeks ago, I decided to pair it with a little mature cheddar and sliced mozzarella and shove all of that in between two slices of ciabatta. Slather it in butter; toast it in a pan and then experience euphoria. When you take your first bite, you will bite through a layer of crunchy, butter bread. Then you’ll get that mouth watering smoky sweetness of the pulled pork and finally the sharpness of the cheddar and the creaminess of the mozzarella. I am pretty much drooling on my keyboard just typing this. It’s the type of sandwich you will randomly crave before feeling bummed out that you can’t eat it right now. And it’s so good that I now don’t wait for the pulled pork leftovers, I make a batch of pulled pork just so I can make this sandwich. And I won’t judge you if you do the same, in fact, I’ll judge you if you don’t.”
