These were common in FL, not so common here in NC. So true to form, I did my best to re-create the Midnight Sandwich/Cuban. This is the result...it's kind of a process, but worth the time!

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This is a terrifically tasty and warm sandwich that will fill the bill for lunch OR supper! I cannot wait to serve them to company.

Ingredients

6
hoagie rolls
1 lb
pork tenderloin
18 slice
deli ham (black forest ham works well)
9 slice
dill pickle
3/4 c
shredded swiss cheese
4 Tbsp
butter/margarine
6 Tbsp
mayonnaise
6 tsp
yellow mustard

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Roast the tenderloin, as directed. (usually 20 min per pound @ 375*), let it rest 10-15 minutes. Slice fairly thin, against the grain.
2
Split Hoagies and spread mayonnaise on the inside of both rolls. Put mustard on the inside of top roll.
3
Now assemble the swiss cheese on the bottom, then a layer of roasted pork, 3 slices of ham (folded to fit), 1 1/2 slices pickle, and then the top of hoagie.
4
Heat skillet to medium, or use a George Foreman (works very well). Spread outside of sandwich with butter or margarine, then grill until golden brown. If using a skillet, press sandwich with a spatula, then flip and press again.
