Recipe Thursday-Cuban Sandwich

Posted on June 24th, 2010 | Posted in Recipes, Sandwich

Who can resist a Cuban Sandwich?  I don’t know about you, but I’ve fallen in love with this sandwich over the past  two years. If this sandwich fits your Restaurant’s menu, Farmer’s Market Stand or Grocery Store’s to-go section, I’d highly recommend adding it!

I purchased this particular Cuban Style Sandwich from Whole Foods Market. It was delicious, but you may be able to tell that they added a few extra ingredients (red roasted peppers, red onion and baby spinach) to make the sandwich their own!

I call this recipe a Cuban Style Sandwich, to give myself a little leeway since people are very particular as to what defines a Cuban Sandwich.

Serves 1


1 8-12″ Cuban Bread or French Baguette
Butter or Olive Oil (880000/992055)
4 thin slices Butcher Wagon Seasoned Roast Pork (HTF6290)
4 thin slices Freda Ham (FRD105-2)
4 thin slices Great Lakes Swiss (774507)
1 large Patriot Dill Pickle or Dill Pickle Chips (990109/990110)
French’s Yellow Mustard (991253)


Cut bread in half horizontally and lightly butter or brush with olive oil, on the crust, spread yellow mustard on both sides.   Then layer roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, and thinly-sliced dill pickles between layers of meat. Heat a cast iron skillet, griddle, or double-sided sandwich maker. Place sandwich on the hot skillet or griddle.  Lay a heavy skillet on top of the sandwich to flatten it to about one-quarter of its original size, grilling for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. If using a double-sided sandwich maker, grill for 3 to 4 minutes. Cut sandwich diagonally and serve hot.
