This is a simple and delicious way to use up Sunday Roast leftovers. Make a batch of roast pork sandwiches to have for lunch, a family gathering at the park or to take to an outdoor party. This recipe is a mouthwatering leftovers idea from our rolled pork loin with creamy mushroom sauce dish. The leftover meat needs to be thoroughly reheated until piping hot and should never be re-heated more than once.

  1. Preheat the grill to high to cook the peppers, turning occasionally until they are completely soft before setting it to the side. Heat the oil in a medium non-stick pan and fry the leftover pork slices until they start to crisp around the edges.
  2. Slice the baps in half and cook under the grill until they turn golden brown. Layer the bottom half of the baps with the relish adding the pork slices, peppers, seasoning, and cheese. Lay it on top and grill until the cheese begins to melt. Top with the remaining bap halves and serve.
