Today is National Roasted Suckling Pig Day, and in honor we are sharing this tasty pork sandwich from The Pig Vicious Truck from Austin, TX.

The Heartstopper Club

Prep Time: 15 minutes | Cook Time: 5 minutes | Yield: 1 sandwich


  • 3 slices sourdough French bread
  • Sriracha sauce
  • 1 cup cooked pulled pork, still warm
  • 1 egg
  • 1 slice Cheddar
  • 5 jalapeno slices
  • Aioli or your favorite sandwich spread
  • 3 slices cooked thick-cut bacon, still warm
  • 3 flaps red leaf lettuce
  • 2 slices juicy red tomato
  • A sprinkling chopped fresh basil andoregano
  • 1 sweet petite pickle


This sandwich can be made using a grill, griddle or frying pan.

Toast the bread so that the middle is soft and the outside is crunchy-a little on the crunchy side is preferable as the bread will be supporting a lot of weight.

Squirt the Sriracha sauce to taste on one slice of toasted bread. Top with the pulled pork.

Fry an egg up, leaving it a little runny. Place the egg on the sandwich.

Using the heat from the fried egg, place the slice of cheese on the egg and melt to your desired consistency. Press the slices of jalapeno into the melting cheese.

Spread the second slice of toasted bread with aioli and add it to the sandwich.

Cut the bacon to size and assemble atop the aioli. Add the red leaf lettuce, tomato, basil and oregano. Top with the final slice of toasted bread. Serve with the pickle.
