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!

  • 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.
