Author Notes: This is one of my Dad's midnight sandwiches, and there's no sandwich like a Daddy midnight sandwich. Legend has it that there was a diner in Sheepshead Bay that used to serve these in the 50's, I've never seen it anywhere or heard of anyone else ever eating them, but a girl has to trust her Daddy. These are some old school fusion...pre banh mi. Really simple, probably just as good with homemade pork and homemade sauce, but the way I remember them is like this... - Aliwaks
- 1 Small order Sliced Roast Pork from Chinese Restaurant
- 2 Small crusty French Bread loaves or one big one cut in half
- 2 cloves garlic
- 1 tablespoon soft butter
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoons (2 packets) or more, Duck Sauce, (can sub mango chutney)
- Mix together garlic, butter & olive oil
- Slice bread in half and schmear with garlic butter
- Toast in toaster oven or broiler till butter melts and bread is toasty.
- Spread duck sauce over garlic butter, layer on pork.
- Close, sandwich, cut in half, eat.
- My brother adds Mozzerella cheese (ugh), I add cilantro, pickled veggies, and Thai basil if I have them on hand, a spritz of hot sauce wouldn't be bad either.
