Grilled Cuban Ham Sandwich with Swiss Cheese

Grilled Cuban Ham Sandwich with Swiss CheeseA tasty version of the "Cubano", a favorite sandwich of Latinos in Southern Florida, especially in the Miami area.

Recipe Ingredients:

4 soft French rolls
1/4 cup yellow mustard
8 slices Wisconsin Swiss or Gruyère Cheese
8 slices ham
8 slices Canadian bacon *
4 (1-ounce) slices Wisconsin Provolone Cheese
16 bread and butter pickle slices (long sandwich slices preferably)
4 teaspoons butter, melted

Cooking Directions:

  1. Split rolls. Spread cut sides of roll with mustard.
  2. Layer and divide Swiss cheese, ham, Canadian bacon, provolone and pickle slices among roll halves.
  3. Heat sandwich press.
  4. Brush top and bottom of sandwich lightly with butter; grill about 4 minutes or until bread is crispy and cheese begins to melt. (Or, grill in nonstick skillet over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes per side, pressing down on bread with spatula—or a foil-covered brick—while cooking.)

Makes 4 servings.

*Or, if desired, omit and increase ham to 3 slices per sandwich.
