How to use Porchetta?
What is italian roasted porchetta? and how we can serve it? Here some tips, from our chef expert Gail, Ron and Wynn. Something simple and easy for your tasty occasion....

The most common way to eat porchetta is to slice it paper thin and eat on a sandwich. In Tuscany “Porchetta Food Trucks” are as popular as BBQ or Mexican Food trucks are here in the states. Our favorite is on your favorite bread toasted with a small amount of mayo, tomato, grilled onion, and roasted peppers. You can also warm the porchetta on a slow cook smoker (250 degrees) or in an oven and then slice a bit thicker for an evening meal. Remember the porchetta is cooked so you are only warming. Left-overs can be cut in small pieces and added to your scrambled eggs the next morning for a delicious omelet!
