Mark Boughton Photography / styling by Teresa Blackburn PrintEmail In central Italy, herb-and-garlic-seasoned pork roast is called porchetta (porquetta). And sandwiches made from it beckon on every street corner. If you can find delicatessen porchetta (sold in some specialty food stores), great; if not, use roasted pre-marinated Italian pork tenderloin. Cool the pork before cutting into thin slices. If you can't find olive mix, chop some garlic-stuffed green olives and mix in a bit of olive oil. Ingredients 4 slices (½-inch thick) Italian country bread olive oil6 ounces thinly sliced porchetta or cooked Italian-seasoned pork tenderloin2 tablespoons minced green olive mix or tapenade2 ounces sliced Manchego cheese Instructions Preheat panini grill or stovetop griddle pan. Divide pork, olive mix, and cheese between 2 slices of bread. Top with remaining bread. Brush outsides lightly with oil. Place on panini grill or griddle. Cover with grill top or grill press. Grill 2 to 3 minutes on each side or until golden and cheese starts to melt.
