This delicacy appeared in Portugal in the mid 50s and 60s, becoming very well known especially in the north of Portugal. Currently, this is one of the reasons to visit Porto and one of its biggest attractions. The Franchesinha is a sandwich with various meats like steak, ham, salami, bacon. There are some variants that have other ingredients, such as egg or it can be presented with different combinations. However, this is covered with melted cheese and a tomato, beer and pepper sauce. The idea came from the original French Croque Monsieur, but it was adapted to Portuguese taste. This delicacy is served with chips, but it is its hot sauce, which gives it the whole personality. You should definitely taste it, with friends or in a healthily solitary act of madness.
