Ham, sausage, steak, roast beef, cheese and a fried egg… Oh my yummy goodness! Get out the fork and knife and get ready for a belly-buster sandwich you might not be able to eat with your hands. This northern Portuguese Francesinha Sandwich is not only a mouthful but also a bellyful of savory, thinly sliced meats topped with cheese of your choice, all served with a fried egg on top and smothered in a decadent port wine, tomato and chili sauce. Serve it with French fries for a traditional, hearty meal.
- Dissolve the cornstarch well with the milk in the food processor bowl. Add the beer, bay leaves, margarine, port wine, cornstarch, tomato paste, and chili. Grind.
- In a saucepan, heat the mixture until it boils and thickens a little, always stirring so that it doesn't stick to the bottom.
- Make a sandwich with the bread, ham, sausages, roast beef, and cover with cheese.
