Known by its fans as the Brazilian BLT. This iconic sandwich is so beloved that the recipe has been written into municipal law with an official certification program to ensure that quality is preserved. Our version enjoys many of the same traditional flavours with a local flare thanks to Ontario roast beef.

 6 slices mozzarella cheese
 4 crusty rolls
 8 slices tomato
 4 slices pickle*
 8 slices Ontario roast beef

Set a glass or metal bowl over a pot of gently simmering water. Add the cheese to the bowl and stir until melted, about 5 minutes. Keep cheese warm and melted while assembling the sandwich.


Split each of the rolls lengthwise. On one half of the bun layer tomato and pickle slices, and Ontario roast beef. Drizzle warm melted cheese on each sandwich before adding top bun. Serve immediately.
