Cubano Sandwich

We tried this sandwich when we lived in Miami and we fell in love with it. Something about the dill pickle, the mustard and the buttered bread that gives it an addicting and comforting bite. You will need a cast iron skillet or a panini press. This is a great lunch sandwich the kids will love too.


  • 1 baguette (get a good one like La Brea)

  • 1/4 Roast Pork (leftover if you have any)

  • 1/4 lb Honey Ham

  • Dill Pickles about 4

  • 2 tablespoons of White Mojo

  • 3 tablespoons of Yellow Mustard

  • 3 tablespoons of butter

  • 6 slices of Swiss Cheese


  • In a small bowl mix the White Mojo with the Yellow Mustard

  • Spread it on the bread

  • Add Cheese, then meats pickles last. Cheese has to be the closest to the bread so it can melt beautifully.

  • Heat a cast iron skillet and smear the outside of the bread with butter. Place the bread on the cast iron and press down or panini press and cook until the cheese melts and the bread is nice and brown.
