Cuban Sandwich

Cuban sandwiches are a South Florida mainstay! They're also quite easy to make at home. Follow our recipe as we assemble a tasty Cuban delicacy. If you're looking for something a little sweeter, consider the Cuban sandwich's cousin, the medianoche sandwich.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 loaf Cuban bread (crusty French bread is also acceptable)
  • 10 slices Roast pork
  • 10 slices Ham
  • 10 slices Swiss cheese
  • 10 slices Pickle
  • Mustard to taste

Preparation:

Slice the bread down the middle and cover both sides with mustard, to taste. Layer the pork, ham and cheese on the bread and garnish with pickles.

If you have a sandwich press, place the sandwich in the greased press and cook it until the cheese melts. If you do not have a sandwich press, you may fry the sandwich on a griddle by placing a large heavy object (such as a cast-iron skillet) on top of it.

Remove the sandwich and cut into pieces, as desired. Serves 3-4 people.
