Grilled Sandwiches (Cuban Style)

"My version of Cuban sandwiches. I used Barb Gertz's Recipe #56080 in the sandwiches and they came out fabulous! This is a hearty sandwich thats crispy on the outside and cheesy on the inside. The pickles are a must!"

  1. I used a hoagie and grilled it on the George Foreman. Fabulous! Very simple yet tasty combination of ingredients. I am addicted to crispy grilled sammiches!
  2. Delicious! I made them using hoagie rolls, Cuban pork roast and slices of ham. I also took you advice and used Barb's honey mustard sauce (I too looked for the mustard), fantastic. We loved these sandwiches and plan on using them everytime I make a pork roast with the leftovers. Thanks for sharing.
  3. These were good stuff. I didn't have the Portuguese rolls because we didn't have any but we used some soft whole kaiser rolls. I used our George Foreman grill and they turned out great.
  4. Yes, mon! I made this leaving out the meat and adding a little sliced Cheddar along with the Swiss cheese. Yum! I didn't have dill pickles so used dill relish. Delish! Thanks Rita! Made for the Epicurean Queens for ZWT 2009!
  5. Before we moved, my son used to order a Cuban panini at a local deli. I never knew what was in the sandwich. When I saw this recipe, I decided to try them for him since he was coming home from college for Christmas. They were a hit. My tip is to butter the side of the sandwich you are going to toast first and don't butter the other side until you are ready to turn it. Otherwise, your baking pan with the 28oz. can of tomatoes (a tip I had gotten from somewhere...) may slide off. Thanks for posting.
