Gourmandize Logo By Emily Marten of Gourmandize | Slide 1 of 50: The Francesinha is originally from Porto, and it's basically a boozy, Portuguese take on grilled cheese or a derivation of the French croque monsieur. Certainly not for the faint-hearted when it comes to meat—stacked with wet-cured ham, linguiça (smoke-cured pork sausage), fresh sausage, steak or roast meat—it's also topped with melted cheese and a hearty tomato-beer sauce. Get the recipe here.
