How to make it

  • Preparation:
  • Preheat oven to 400°F. Cut the loaf of bread in half lengthwise. Spread the mustard on each side. Layer the roast pork along the bottom half, then add a layer of ham, cheese and finally the pickles. Cover with the top half of the loaf.
  • Wrap the sandwich in aluminum foil and set it on a baking sheet. Weigh the sandwich down with bricks or a heavy skillet and bake until heated through and the cheese is melted, about 15 minutes.
  • Unwrap, slice into individual portions and serve hot.
  • Variations
  • These sandwiches are typically made in a hot sandwich press, but the instructions above yield a good approximation. Or use a skillet over a medium-low flame on the stovetop and weigh down the sandwich with another, smaller skillet. A final option is to place the foil-wrapped sandwich on a hot grill and weigh it down with bricks wrapped in aluminum foil.
  • The bread can be buttered on both sides before the mustard is spread on it.

    Cubans are my all time favorite sandwich. This is exactly perfect. There is a version of it with a black bread or pumpernickle. I can't quite drag up the name but it is less often seen.
