Description

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.

Ingredients

  • Slow-Cooker Puerto Rican Pork Left Overs (See Note)
  • Crispy Crust Bread
  • Ham
  • Swiss Cheese
  • Mayonnaise
  • Yellow Mustard
  • Sweet Butter Or Dill Pickles

Preparation

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

Made your pernil (from your blog) and with the leftovers we made these. Oh my goodness. So, so good. I am waiting for pork shoulder to go on sale so I can make again. The sandwiches taste best on crusty bread. I used a french loaf.

Awesome Cuban sandwich! I made the pork from the Noshery website and while that was good on its own, it was even better in the sammie! I used dutch crunch bread for crunch/texture and loved the taste of the pickes, pork and cheese. Will definitely make again!! Thanks!
