Sandwich Essentials: Baked Pork & Ham Sammie

Andy Anderson !


When I started making these for Sunday brunch, they were supposed to be Cubano sandwiches; however, the mad scientist took over, I made a few wee changes, and this is the end result.

At least everyone liked them.

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

How to Make Sandwich Essentials: Baked Pork & Ham Sammie


  2. I made these sandwiches the other day (Sunday, to be exact), for a small gathering. The problem is that I did not take any photos, so this morning, I made a half of one, for the purpose of taking photos. It was my 3:30a breakfast.
    So, although the recipe ingredients are for a whole sandwich, the photos only show a half of one… Still tasted yummy.
  3. Gather your ingredients (mise en place).
  4. Place a rack in the upper-middle position and preheat oven to 350f (175c).
  5. Mix the avocado spread ingredients together in a small bowl.
  6. Toast the bread, then spread the avocado spread on one side of each piece.
  7. Layer the ingredients on one slice as follows:
    • Pork
    • Slice of Swiss cheese
    • Ham
    • Slice of Swiss cheese
  8. Place into the preheated oven, and bake until warmed through, and the cheese is nice and melty, about 15 – 18 minutes.
  10. Place the other slice of toasted bread on top, and serve with chips, tomato, dill pickle, whatever you have a hankering for. Enjoy.
  11. Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
