Cuban sandwiches are one of my favorite sandwiches. When I was in high school back home in Puerto Rico I would go to this bakery called “Facciola” that served the best Cuban sandwich I have had to date. I have seen different variations and twists on the Cuban sandwich, but this is how you make a traditional Cuban sandwich. Supplies needed: crispy crust bread, ham, pernil, Swiss, mayo, mustard and pickles.
Heat sandwich press.
Slices bread to desired length, spread with mayonnaise and yellow mustard. Stack Swiss cheese, pernil, ham and pickles, top with bread.
Brush sandwich press with melted butter, place sandwich on press and brush with butter. Press for 1 to 2 minutes, until cheese begins to melt, then turn and press for another 1 to 2 minutes.
Enjoy hot off the press.
Note: Slow-Cooked Puerto Rican Pork recipe available at
Feel free to customize the toppings to your taste. I like my wrap with avocado, tomato and lettuce while my husband likes the chicken on a bun as a club sandwich. The real key to this recipe is the marinade.
