Cuban Sandwich

Cuban Sandwich


2 loaves (individual) Cuban Bread (see note)
¼ cup Yellow Mustard
2 whole Dill Pickles, sliced
3 oz. Thinly Sliced Ham
3 oz. Thinly Sliced Pork (see note)
4 oz. Sliced Swiss Cheese
2 tbsp. Butter


Cut the loaves in half lengthwise and layout in front of you. Spread half of the mustard on the bottom half of each loaf. Top the mustard with the sliced pickles. Neatly cover all of the bottom loaf of each sandwich with the sliced ham followed by the sliced pork. Top the meat with the cheese slices to cover all the meat and place top of loaf on each sandwich. Now butter the tops of each sandwich. Use a panini press, waffle maker or heavy cast-iron skillet to grill. If using skillet, you will need another hot one to place on top of sandwich. Grill 4-6 minutes or until top is nicely browned and cheese has melted. Cut diagonally and serve.

Note: If you can't fine Cuban loaves, try sub loaves, baguettes or any bun like bread that you like to eat.

Note: You can use any cooked pork here. You don't have to do anything special for the pork. This is a good way to use leftovers. Sliced cooked pork loin or cooked pork chops work great. You could even use pulled pork if you have it available. Use your imagination.
