- 4 hoagie rolls
- 2 tablespoons yellow mustard
- 1⁄4 lb baked ham, thinly sliced
- 1⁄4 lb roast pork, thinly sliced
- 1⁄4 lb provolone cheese, thinly sliced
- 10 thin dill pickle slices, approximately 2 whole pickles (or you can use the sandwich stackers)
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, room temperature
- Slice the bread horizontally in half, leaving 1 edge intact.
- Lay the bread open and spread each side with the mustard.
- Divide the ingredients evenly among the slices of roll.
- Start with the ham followed by the pork, cheese, and dill pickles.
- Bring the tops and bottoms together.
- Heat your panini maker or sandwich press.
- Butter each side of the press.
- Place the sandwiches inside, press down and grill until the cheese is melted and the bread is flat and browned, approximately 10 minutes.
- If you don't have a sandwich press, you can heat 6 fireplace bricks wrapped in foil, in a 500°F oven for 1 hour and then press the sandwich between them for 10 minutes.
- Serve warm.

Num yummy! These sandwiches were great! I used Shredded Savory Pork #323954 for the roast pork, and used spicy brown mustard (I just prefer it over the regular yellow). The sandwich stackers worked great for these, they were the perfect size for the hoagie rolls, and you got some pickle in every bite. Naturally, I put extra cheese on mine. We will definitely have these again. Thanks!
