Cuban Sandwich

Cuban Sandwich

When I see a Cuban sandwich on a restaurant menu, I usually order it. There is something so delicious about the crispy bread with spicy mustard, dill pickles, tender pork, and melted swiss cheese. I recently made a batch of  Carnitas and I had some leftover meat. I grabbed a bag of par baked panini rolls and baked them. Once they were ready, I sliced them down the center and slathered some spicy mustard on one side then layered dill pickles followed by a big spoonful of pork carnitas and topped with some Swiss cheese. I baked them open faced in the oven for 5-7 minutes, or until the pork was cooked through and the cheese was melted. My husband, daughter, and I LOVED them (although my daughter took the Swiss cheese off of hers). My son wasn’t a huge fan – he didn’t like the pickles or mustard on the sandwich. I will be making these again!

    I used to own a DELI and this was one of my best selling items on the menu-people here in florida “LOVE THEM”.

  6. classic. i might be tempted to squish mine as flatly as possible, but other than that, this is perfection. 🙂

  7. I love Cuban’s, too. It is great that you used the carnitas for this sandwich. What a great way to change things up. My girls don’t like swiss cheese either, which I always think is funny for some reason.
