I am not the kind of cook that can always make the same thing for dinner. That means I am constantly on the lookout for interesting and new things to try out with my family. Tonight these were on our dinner table and I have to say they were quite delicious. My husband always orders the Cuban when we go to his favorite restaurant, but he said these top his usual! Next time, the only change I would make is to use spicy mustard because I thought the sandwiches could use a little more zip. Outside of that--yummy!
Pressed Cuban Sandwiches
We made these sandwiches in a skillet, but feel free to use a hot panini press instead. You'll still get the same tasty results.
