A cuban press sandwich without a panini press
When you have a tiny kitchen like mine, there is no room for appliances like a panini press. Don't get me wrong, I would love to have one if I had the space and the money but it is easy to get the same results with a couple of bricks and heavy duty aluminum foil.
The cuban is one of my favorite sandwiches and easy to make at home.
Loaf of Cuban bread
mild flavored ham
roast pork (in today's cuban, I used pulled pork shoulder that we smoked)
dill pickle slices
baby swiss cheese
Cut bread in half lengthwise. Butter top and inside of bread. Spread mustard on top slice. Layer with pickles, pork,ham and then cheese.
Grill on hot pan with foil covered bricks to press sandwich.
