Ingredients

Instructions

  • Preheat two cast iron skillets* or a panini maker.
  • Cut the bread in half and layer ingredients on the bottom half in this order: McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli Naturally Smoked Uncured Ham, mojo pork, pickle, and McKenzie Natural Artisan Deli Swiss Cheese. Spread a layer of mustard on the top layer of bread and place it on top the rest of the sandwich
  • Once the sandwich is assembled, butter outside of both pieces of bread and place in the skillet. Place the smaller skillet on top of the Cuban sandwich letting the weight compress it. Use oven mitts so don't burn yourself.  
  • Cook until warmed through and golden brown on the outside.  You may need to flip once to ensure even cook.

Notes

  • If you have access to Cuban Bread, then French bread or a soft ciabatta will do or even a hoagie¬†roll. You're looking for a bread that is about 3 inches wide, soft on the inside and crusty on the outside or one that can be toasted up nicely for a crunchy outer layer.¬†
  • Instead of investing in a plancha (or panini maker) if you don't already have one, use two cast iron frying pans, one slightly larger than the other.
    I heat both up on the stove, place the Cuban sandwich in the big one then put the other on top, press down a bit and let them sit there.
