Roasted Garlic, Burrata, Porketta & Rocket Pesto Sandwich

15 minutes
Serves 2-4
Thick, squidgy slabs of Gilda sourdough - baked in Bishopsbourne and available fresh in store - are the perfect bread on which to build an Italian-inspired sandwich for National Sandwich Week. The roasted garlic pairs perfectly with gooey burrata, a homemade rocket pesto and our Macknade Porketta - made by our butchers in-store!


  1. To make the pesto, blitz together the rocket, basil leaves (stems removed unless you have a very high power food processor or blender), hazelnuts, oil and lemon juice. 

  1. Scrape down the sides, add the parmesan and a generous amount of salt, and blitz again. Season to taste.

  1. Split the focaccia in half down the middle and break the burrata over the lower half, using a knife to spread the creamy middle right to the edges of the bread.

  1. Pile on the Macknade Porketta, and spread about 3 teaspoons of pesto onto the upper half.

  1. Assemble the sandwich, and cut into half or quarters. Enjoy immediately!
