  • The Brazilian Bauru Sandwich is as popular in Brazil as the BLT is in the U.S. The sandwich consists of a roll without the soft interior with layers of roast beef, tomatoes and melted mozzarella cheese. Delicious, quick and easy!

The Secret Ingredient


  • 4 (6-inch) hoagie rolls
  • 1 small poblano chile, roasted, peeled and deveined
  • 1 small avocado, pitted and peeled
  • 1/2 cup NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Evaporated Lowfat 2% Milk
  • 1/2 lime, juiced
  • 1 small clove garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 teaspoon MAGGI Granulated Chicken Flavor Bouillon
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 1/2 pound sliced roast beef
  • 4 mozzarella cheese slices
  • 8 dill pickle strips
  • 1 roma tomato, sliced into thin rounds

Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350° F.

Step 2

Slice rolls in half lengthwise. Remove some of the bread from inside the roll.

Step 3

Combine chile, avocado, evaporated milk, lime juice, garlic and bouillon in blender or food processor; cover. Blend until smooth. Add parsley; pulse 5 to 7 times to incorporate parsley in sauce. Set aside.

Step 4

Layer 2 slices of roast beef on bottom half of each roll; top with mozzarella, two pickle strips and slices of tomato. Place assembled sandwiches on a baking sheet with tops of rolls on the side, sliced side facing up.

Step 5

Bake for 10 minutes or until cheese begins to melt. Remove from oven; spread 2 tablespoons of chile-avocado sauce on top half of rolls. Place tops on assembled sandwiches. Serve with a green salad.
If hoagie bread is not available, use French bread or bolillos. Refrigerate leftover chile-avocado sauce and use as a dip for vegetables.
