Cover with multiple slices of cheese on all sides and bake until the cheese begins to melt. Finally put down the one that is the most important “Francesinha” ingredient the hot sauce, slightly thick and spicy. And the “Tripas” Oporto population deprived of meat, was left with only the giblets, like gut, and it was with them that they invented a recipe to take advantage of the little resources that they had.
The success of the recipe was so great that it became an iconic dish of the city of Oporto, in such a way that even its inhabitants happened to be called tripeiros.
