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

Step-By-Step

1Roast the tenderloin, as directed. (usually 20 min per pound @ 375*), let it rest 10-15 minutes. Slice fairly thin, against the grain.
2Split Hoagies and spread mayonnaise on the inside of both rolls. Put mustard on the inside of top roll.
3Now 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.
4Heat 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.
