A Cuban sandwich, also called “Cubano” is made with ham, roast pork, pickles and swiss cheese, all generously stacked on Cuban bread. The sandwich is then lightly buttered and heated on a plancha (sandwich press) until the bread is nice and toasty and the cheese is melted.
If you don’t have a sandwich press you can use a large skillet to toast the sandwich. Heat a large, heavy skillet on medium to medium-low heat. Place the Cubano on the skillet and place another heavy skillet, large lid or cast iron bacon press on top and press down gently. When the bread is toasted, flip the sandwich and repeat until the other side is toasted and the cheese is melted.
