Toasted Carlitos Sandwich

In my native Argentina, there is a great variety of gastronomy. As in the majority of countries there are also typical dishes from each region. Today I would like to share with you a delicioso sandwich from the city of Rosario in the Santa Fe province where I was born and raised. If one day you have the opportunity to visit this city, you must make time to visit the flag monument, the riverside and eat a traditional "carlito" sandwich in one of the neighborhood bars. The carlito is only found in Rosario. They are prepared with typical Argentinean sliced bread, and toasted with ham and cheese. Great for dinner or a snack for an evening stroll, here we'll recreate this recipe for you to enjoy at home, even if you are far or very distant from this great city. MORE + LESS -
