I agree with soft white burger buns or potato rolls

Why be conventional if it's mundane? I like a bit of texture/crunch so, since the pork is soft, would have it in a small french baguette. Even with chopped sunblush tomatoes and romaine lettuce!

In a pulled pork sandwich, the texture and crunch come from the coleslaw served on top of the meat. I don't like sandwiches on baguettes; the filling usually squishes out of the side and falls on the plate.

Sandwich "rules" dictate that you use softer breads for softer fillings and save harder breads for harder fillings.

There are "rules"? When it comes to tastes, each to their own!

Go crazy, live dangerously, run from the bread police and dare even to adapt the fillings - flout the 'rules' I say!!

I'd go for a big, fat Kaiser roll.

That depends on the filling and also how you use the baguette.

Mini baguettes are good sliced horizontally to form an open sandwich...everything kept in place by a 'lid' of a romaine lettuce leaf.

I have just eaten an open baguette sandwich in this fashion which was easy to eat (holding the lettuce, no squishing out) and scrumptious! (I spread the horizontally sliced mini baguette with smoked salmon pate, topped with sliced boiled egg, roasted red pepper and tomato slices then the romaine lettuce leaf covering it all, which can be held like the top of a roll).

Why did you choose to make your sandwich this way rather than just fillings and bread?
