Can someone ping me with a way to kick up a Cuban Sandwich with some good cheese selections? Other than the original, we have added, at times, bacon, spicy mustard, Southwest mustard and used different breads. Still looking for a better cheese or ?? Thanks
Comiendo bueno, m'FRiend!
Have used this recipe with great success”
it is Emeril’s
This is also great with the use of raisins. I have always used a mango mustard.
I don’t know about Cuban Sandwich, but I just recently discovered Gouda, and especially smoked Gouda, and it’s very Good.
Our modern diets are practically devoid of Vitamin k2. An oz of Gouda has about half of the amount you need. Real butter from grass fed cows also has a good amount, but grain-fed cows not so much.
Same thing for Eggs, free range eggs pretty good source, but I digress. I love the smoked Gouda-might be worth a try.
Total Time:18 min
Cook: 6 min
INGREDIENTS: for 4 sandwiches
1/3 cup grapeseed oil
8 French or Italian Bread slices
8 slices Swiss cheese OR provolone
1/4 cup whole-grain mustard
8 slices deli ham, warmed
4 oz (ea) cooked pork loin (option: pre-cooked roasted pork such as Hormel Pork Roast Au Jus)
16 thin dill pickle slices
Heat a large pan or griddle with the oil to medium heat.
Put the bread in the pan (in batches if need be) and place a slice of Swiss on each.
Spread about 1/2 tablespoon of the mustard over the top of a cheese slice, mayonnaise on other. Stack half of the tortillas with 4 ounces of pulled pork followed by 2 slices of ham.
Add 4 pickle slices on top of the ham, then top with a second bread slice(with just the cheese) to make a sandwich.
Press the sandwiches lightly and allow the cheese to melt, making sure that the tortillas are nice and crispy. Slice the sandwiches in half and serve
