Grilled Cuban Sandwiches

Yield Makes 4 servings
Prep: 10 min., Grill: 10 min. This pressed sandwich uses a baking sheet and skillet to weigh it down on the grill. A panini press or indoor grill will also do the trick.


  • 4 (3-ounce) white sub rolls, split
  • 4 tablespoons yellow mustard
  • 4 kosher pickle halves, sliced lengthwise into thirds
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced deli roast turkey
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced deli ham
  • 6 ounces thinly sliced deli roast beef
  • 6 (1-ounce) Swiss cheese slices
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

How to Make It

  1. Spread cut sides of each roll evenly with mustard. Layer bottom halves of rolls evenly with pickle slices and next 4 ingredients; top with remaining roll halves, pressing sandwiches together gently. Brush outside of rolls evenly with olive oil.

  2. Place sandwiches directly on cooking grate of grill, and top with a baking sheet. Place a heavy skillet on top of baking sheet. Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium heat (300° to 350°) 3 to 5 minutes on each side or until cheese is melted and sandwich is browned.
