Cuban Sandwich

Raven Higheagle


This version of the popular sandwich is a combination of turkey, roast pork, ham, and Swiss cheese, piled high on Cuban bread and pressed with a sandwich iron until the bread is hot and crispy and the cheese has slightly melted. Since a sandwich iron is not an item found in most household kitchens, you can use a heavy skillet for pressing, or make the sandwich in a hinged nonstick grill or a panini press.
