Cuban Sandwich Recipe


Cuban Sandwich Recipe

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


  • 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


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.
