ANYONE UP FOR A MORTADELA SANDWICH?

Mortadella (Italian pronunciation: [mortaˈdɛla]) is a large Italian sausage[1] or cold cut (salume /sa'lume/) made of finely hashed or ground, heat-cured pork sausage, which incorporates at least 15% small cubes of pork fat (principally the hard fat from the neck of the pig). Mortadella is a staple product of Bologna, Italy. It is flavored with spices, including whole or ground black pepper, myrtle berries, nutmeg, coriander and pistachios, jalapeños and/or olives, though those with flavours other than ground pepper and myrtle are not made with the original recipe from Bologna.
  
Mortadella sandwich is any sandwich using mortadella,  and also refers to a very popular sandwich in Brazil especially São Paulo made with mortadella sausage. The sandwich is made from nearly a half of a pound of mortadella sausage, Provolone cheese, sourdough bread, mayonnaise and Dijon mustard.

Yummmy!
