Pork Melts:

2. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Slice baguette into 3 equal pieces, each about 5-1/2 inches long. Slice each piece of bread in half horizontally to make 6 pieces total. Arrange the bread pieces, cut sides up, on a baking sheet.

3. Spread 1/2 tablespoon relish onto each piece of bread. Top with roasted peppers, dividing equally. Divide pulled pork among bread pieces, about 1/3 cup per sandwich. Sprinkle with cheddar, dividing equally.

4. Bake sandwiches in 400 degrees F oven 12 minutes or until barbecued pork is hot and cheese is melted. Run under the broiler for 2 minutes until bubbly, if desired. Serve warm with coleslaw.
