CUBAN Sandwich

Tonya mentioned it and I will give you a quick recipe. Don't know how lean and healthy it may be but it sure is delicioso

12-inch long Cuban bread(you can use french bread if you can't find Cuban)
1/2 teaspoon mayonnaise
1/2 teaspoon mustard
3 ounces serrano ham, thinly sliced (sweet ham can be substituted)
3 ounces roasted pork, thinly sliced
1/2- ounce pickle slices
3 ounces Swiss cheese, thinly sliced

Cut the bread in half and then cut to open the bread. Rub the mayo, and mustard. Start layering the ham, pork and cheese then the pickles.
Grill the sandwiches in a buttered sandwich press until they are flat, the bread is browned, and the cheese has melted. If you don't have a press use an Iron skillet and put a have pan on top. Cut each sandwich in half and serve at once.

Enjoy it is well worth it.
Also, if you substitute the Cuban/French bread for a sweet roll then you have a
Media Noche Sandwich (Midnight Sandwich) this is my all time favorite sandwich.

so now you have 2 for the price of 1.

I do not eat meat but my family owns a restaurant and we created a Cuban panini just like this. It was a huge hit and people still ask for it as part of the regular menu instead of a special. Try it with tomatoes - just adds a little bit of juiciness!

No that looks delish. Great stuff.
