Bresaola and Stracchino Sandwich

Bresaola and Stracchino are two ingredients you don’t hear often enough outside of Italy. These two ingredients are delicious on their own but perfect together, which is why I made a sandwich. Now, I know this sandwich isn’t easy to make because of the two main ingredients used. You aren’t going to find these at most grocery stores, they are typically found in specialty shops and bakeries. The point of this recipe is to get you out of your comfort zone, try a new shop or bakery, taste a new ingredient and try a new recipe. If you are able to find these ingredients where you live, I hope you try this sandwich and enjoy it.


Recipe by Mark Calaminici | Food Loves Company

Serves 1


Walnuts, to taste, toasted and chopped up

Radicchio, thinly sliced, to taste

Extra virgin olive oil, to taste

Salt, to taste

Freshly cracked pepper, to taste

Chili flakes, to taste

Balsamic glaze, to taste (substitute honey)

Bread, sliced and toasted (optional)

Stracchino, to taste

Bresaola, thinly sliced, to taste


1 In a large dry frying pan on low-medium heat, add walnuts and toast for 4-5 minutes or until browned. Chop up to your desired consistency. Place in a bowl and set aside.

2. In a bowl add radicchio, extra virgin olive oil, chilli flakes, balsamic glaze and season with salt and freshly cracked pepper. Give a mix and set aside.

3. If toasting your bread you can add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil onto the bread and toast. You can also remove the inside of the bread before toasting to create more space for the filling. Lay toasted bun on work surface. Spread stracchino on the bottom half of the bun. Layer bresaola on top of the stracchino. Top with radicchio salad and toasted walnuts. Enjoy!
