Cuban Sandwich

Anyone who lives in Miami or has been to Miami has savored a Cuban sandwich. Although you can find it in every Latin cafeteria in town at any hour, it's fun and convenient to create it at home. Plus, if you live outside of Miami, you can pretend you are on vacation by taking a bite out of this traditional dish. Here's how we make it:

3 slices of deli ham (thinly sliced)
3 slices of deli pork (thinly sliced)
2 slices of Swiss cheese
Cuban bread (or French Bread if they do not sell Cuban bread in your area)
3-4 pickles

Kitchen Essentials:
Bread knife
Cutting Board
Butter knife
Panini press (or George Foreman Grill)

Turn the Panini press on to pre-heat.

Begin to assemble your Cuban sandwich by cutting the Cuban bread into 6-inch piece. Slice the piece of bread in half and place your desired amount of mustard on the bottom half of the bread. Layer the ham and pork and top with swiss cheese and pickles. Put the top half of the bread on the sandwich and spread a small amount of butter on the top. Place the sandwich on the panini press and toast for 5-6 minutes. Once the bread is golden brown, take the sandwich off the panini press and slice in half in an angle. ¡Buen provecho! (Enjoy your meal!)
