      Wow, this was awesome!! My DH grilled the pork roast on the grill in over 90 degree weather because the deli didn't have roast pork. I used my panini press and it was really easy. I tried with and without mustard and everyone preferred with mustard, even the extra picky plain sandwich crowd.

      Num yummy! These sandwiches were great! I used Shredded Savory Pork #323954 for the roast pork, and used spicy brown mustard (I just prefer it over the regular yellow). The sandwich stackers worked great for these, they were the perfect size for the hoagie rolls, and you got some pickle in every bite. Naturally, I put extra cheese on mine. We will definitely have these again. Thanks!
