1/2 Photos of Cuban Panini
No, this is not the authentic Miami Cuban sandwich, but it is a fairly reasonable substitute for those of us who don't have quick access to real McCoy. Deli sliced meats make this a fast and filling sandwich.
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1 loaf Cuban bread (if not available, use a French or Italian loaf from the deli)
- 1/4 cup yellow mustard
- 1/3 cup mayonnaise
- 2 large dill pickles, thinly sliced lengthwise
- 1/2 lb swiss cheese, thinly sliced
- 3/4 lb ham, thinly sliced
- 1/2 lb pork roast, thinly sliced
- 1/3 lb genoa salami, thinly sliced
- 2 tablespoons butter, softened
- 1Preheat sandwich press.
- 2Cut bread in half lengthwise.
- 3Spread inside top and bottom with mustard and mayonnaise.
- 4On bottom half, layer pickle slices,Swiss cheese, ham, pork and salami.
- 5Cover with top half of bread.
- 6Cut the loaf into 4 equal sandwich portions.
- 7Lightly butter top and bottom of each sandwich and press on the grill until the bread is crusty and the cheese is melted.
- 8Slice in half diagonally and serve.
- 9*** Note - if you don't have a panini press or a sandwich grill type appliance, just use 2 heavy skillets - 1 to cook in and the other on top of the sandwiches to press them down. I would suggest covering the bottom of the pressing-skillet with aluminum foil.
