How to make it

  • Heat a cast iron skillet or griddle, or a double-sided sandwich maker such as a Foreman Grill. Spread mustard and mayonnaise as desired on each piece of the bread.
  • Layer 2 slices each of the ham, turkey, salami, and cheese on 2 pieces of the bread.
  • Layer even amounts of pickle between the meat and cheese. If desired, top each with even amounts of spinach, purple onion, and red pepper.
  • Using the top of the bread, make 2 sandwiches.
  • Place them on the hot skillet or griddle. (If desired, you can use a small amount of clarified butter on the grill).
  • Lay a heavy iron skillet or other heavy skillet on top of the sandwich. (You may need to prepare one sandwich at a time). Flatten the sandwich to about 1/4 of its original size, grilling for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. If using a double-sided sandwich maker, grill for 3 to 4 minutes, watching carefully.

    I love a good Cubano...& I really don't want to knock anyone but this recipe takes away from everything a Cubano is. A Cubano is supposed to be simple ingredients that when brought together compliment each other. Just about every recipe for one tells you absolutely no Baguettes are to be used. No Mayo either.
    The addition of vege's & Mayo are not what I would call a Cuban Sandwich

    I just started making panini sandwiches. I had the Cuban down in Florida last year and liked it. I made my first with a roll, ham, roast pork, swiss cheese, yellow mustard and pickle. I put it on my new Wolfgang Puck Tri Grill, Delicious.

    This sounds like a good sandwich but it is not a cuban sandwich. I'm cuban and a cuban sandwich consists of a baguette, ham, pork shoulder, swiss cheese, pickles, and regular mustard. After you make the sandwich, you cook it on a sandwich press
