Dynamite Pork Sandwich

When you want a simple dinner, sandwiches are a great option. I get bored of the usual turkey club though, so I'm always trying to create new recipes. Hot sandwiches are excellent, because they function well as dinner or lunch. Last week, I came up with this Pork Dynamite Sandwich (I named it "Dynamite" for no particular reason, so just enjoy it!). The sandwich has salted pork belly (cooked to a crisp), spicy chipotle cheddar cheese, fried jalapenos, and herb-garlic butter, and.... raspberry jam! This might seems like a strange combo, but the smoky spiciness of the jalapenos and cheese play well with the tart sweetness of the jam and the super saltiness of the pork.
