Cuban Sandwich

I haven’t had a Cuban sandwich in years. I found some roast pork at the grocery store the other day and tried to remember what was in the last Cuban sandwich I had. It was a short list of ingredients & looked online when I got home to make sure I had everything. This site had the recipe the closest to what I remembered it tasting like, so we went from there.

We had this with baked sweet potato fries and it made for a very filling dinner. Enjoy!!


Cuban sandwich


Cuban bread or French bread

Butter, softened

1/2 pound ham, sliced (Use a good quality ham.)

1/2 pound roasted pork

1/4 pound Swiss cheese, sliced

Sliced dill pickles (we buy the dill "Sandwich Stackers")

Yellow mustard

Preheat a large fry pan. Cut the bread into sections about 6 inches long. Cut these in half and spread butter on both halves (inside). Make each sandwich with the ingredients in this order: pickles, roasted pork, ham, and cheese. Be generous!

Place the sandwich on the hot fry pan sprayed with a little "Pam". Place a heavy iron skillet or bacon press on top of the sandwich to flatten. (You really want to smash the sandwich, compressing the bread to about 1/3 its original size!) Grill the sandwiches for two to three minutes on each side, until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden. Slice the sandwich in half diagonally and serve.
