This is so good. I used #349384 for the pork and then pressed the sandwich between the griddle and foil lined bricks. So good. Thank you for sharing with us.

Delicious! I used four small gluten free baguette rolls and organic ham and pork, not quite sure if it was what the recipe called for, but it made a really delicious dinner accompanied by some coleslaw. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for ZWT 9 / Caribbean for The Apron String Travelers

I love Cuban sandwiches, but until now, had never tried making one at home. So good, and really easy to make once you have the roast pork on hand. I made my own roast pork using Recipe#503387 in the crockpot. With a little bit of planning for the roast pork, now I can enjoy Cuban sandwiches just about any time I like, yay! Sorry, no photo, DH had taken my camera for the day. Thanks for posting! Made for The Hot PInk Panthers for ZWT9 Family Picks
