A traditional Cuban sandwich packs roast pork and thinly sliced ham. We've switched it up a bit, subbing in leftover ham and turkey. For best results, use two cast-iron skillets or a sandwich press.
2 soft Portuguese rolls or soft French sandwich rolls, sliced lengthwise
Prepared mustard, to taste
1 large dill pickle, thinly sliced lengthwise
4 ounces roast turkey, sliced
4 ounces ham, thinly sliced
3 ounces sliced Swiss or provolone cheese
How to Make It
Spread each roll with mustard. Arrange half of pickle, turkey, ham, and cheese slices on each roll; press together gently. Spread outsides of rolls with butter.
Place sandwiches in cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Put second skillet directly on sandwiches. Press down, and grill 5 to 10 minutes on each side or until cheese is melted and sandwich is flattened and browned.
We love Cuban Sandwiches, and now with turkey it is just as good. I set up a tray for my family with different ingredients for sandwiches, makes for an interesting outcome of flavors. We usually serve the sandwiches along with a salad or light tomato soup.
