Pressed Cuban Sandwich Recipe @pinch

If you've taken a trip to Miami or The Keys, you've probably enjoyed a Cuban sandwich. When you can't travel and want a taste of warmer weather, try this sandwich at home. Roast pork, ham, Swiss cheese, yellow mustard, and dill pickle are sandwiched between bread and pressed. The final result is a terrifically tasty and warm sandwich that will fit the bill for lunch or supper! These were common in FL, but 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!
