Cook It: Double Pork Sandwich with Spicy Garlic Honey Mustard

A quick sandwich to make after a long day, this easy to make double pork sandwich is by far one of the most delicious sandwiches I've ever made!

Ingredients needed: A roll (preferably a croissant, but all I had was a Kaiser roll and it definitely sufficed!), thin bacon, deli sliced ham, your choice of cheese (I chose American), mayonnaise, Dijon mustard, spicy brown mustard, honey, ground red pepper, and garlic.

Cook the bacon in a small pan until cooked to your liking. Set on a paper towel to drain and cool completely.
Slice your bread in half and toast it lightly.

For the sauce, mince 2 cloves of garlic into a small bowl. You can just go for one clove if you're a little timid with garlic, but I'm a huge garlic lover, I couldn't resist putting in 2! (I am using a garlic mincer, so much easier than mincing it yourself.)
Add 1 tablespoon of mayo into your garlic. Mayo is going to add substance into the sauce and make it thicker. Because mayo has a naturally very soft flavor and the mustard is so strong, it adds virtually no flavor to the sauce. If you really dislike mayo, I suppose you could substitute sour cream!

Add 1 teaspoon each of Dijon and spicy brown mustard. I love the combination of both, but you can easily just add 2 teaspoons of your favorite mustard, or any combination you choose. Add in 1 teaspoon of honey. Finish with about 1/4 teaspoon of ground red pepper.
Spread a generous amount of the spicy garlic honey mustard on one side of your bread.

Layer 3 pieces of ham and your choice of cheese on the opposite slice of bread. Then, layer the cooled bacon on top. I like to skim off the more fatty pieces so it's easier to eat.
Top it off, and enjoy!
