Sammie Essentials: Customized Cuban Sandwich

Andy Anderson !


My inspiration for this recipe came from the Cubano sandwich. That awesome creation from Havana. I changed a few things around, and added my own touches. But, in the end, this is an awesome sandwich with a lot of wonderful flavors.

So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
