America’s Best New Sandwiches 2012
Endless Simmer has once again posted their lineup of America's best new sandwiches (2012 edition) and, weirdly enough, cheese is featured in almost all ten of them! (Insert feigned surprised-face.) Beyond that (very important) fact, these sandwiches look friggin' awesome, and we should all attempt to make them at home, starting today:
10. The Noble Pig — Noble Pig Sandwiches, Austin TX
Texas may be best known for its beef, but perhaps not for long, if chefs John Bates and Brandon Martinez have anything to say about it. Their year-and-a-half-old Noble Pig serves up a namesake sandwich that somehow combines everything that is beautiful about pork products on one truly outstanding sandwich. Tender pulled pork, spicy slivers of ham, and crispy bits of bacon are all mixed together, topped with provolone cheese, and served on toasted, house-baked bread, for a porky trifecta that hits all of the spots.
