“Most Cuban-Americans have at least one parent or grandparent who worked at some point or another in the "factoria” (factory). In our household it was my mother who took the bus at dawn every morning to the sewing factory. On a good day, she could pack a lunch with a leftover slice of Cuban sandwich.” Ivonne
Cuban bread (yeah right, like we'd find Cuban bread in the middle of nowhere, we'll substitute
with a French bread -NOT a baquette)
pot until done)
Sweet Ham, thick sliced
Yellow mustard (optional)
To prepare the sandwich slice the bread horizontally and spread butter on both inside halves.
Lay the pickles on the bottom half followed by a layer of roast pork, then ham and Swiss
You can spread mustard on the inside top half.
Close the sandwich, spread a little butter on the top and place it on a Panini press (okay, I know
you don't have one, but I bet you have a George Foreman grill which works the same, if not then
place the sandwich on a hot (not too hot) lightly greased frying pan. Place a heavy iron skillet on
top of the sandwich to flatten.) The sandwich should be compressed to about 1/3 its original
Grill the sandwiches, until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden.
Slice the sandwich in half diagonally and serve.
