Classic Cuban Sandwiches

Instead of using a loaf of Cuban bread, we used soft hoagie rolls. The rolls have the crusty outside and soft inside texture of a long thin loaf of Cuban bread and are easier to find.

  • 1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons light mayonnaise
  • 6 (2 1/2-ounce) hoagie rolls with sesame seeds, split and toasted

  1. Preheat oven to 400°.

Place pork in pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or just until browned. Place pan in oven and bake, uncovered, at 400° for 15 to 18 minutes or until a meat thermometer inserted into thickest portion of pork registers 160°. Let stand 5 minutes. Thinly slice pork into 24 pieces.

  4. Spread mayonnaise evenly on bottom half of each roll. Spread mustard evenly on top half of each roll. Arrange 4 pickle slices on bottom halves of rolls; top with 4 pork slices, 1 slice ham, and 2 half slices cheese. Place tops of rolls over cheese, mustard side down. Place sandwiches on a baking sheet. Bake at 300° for 10 minutes or until cheese melts.
