Cuban Panini

So, when I think of Cuban sandwiches I think of vacations to South Florida and Mojitos. It may sound a little strange but I've only had cuban sandwiches while in florida. That is the first meal I have when I arrive and I wash it down with a refreshing mojito. For those that didn't already know, I have a love for mojitos. But that's another story! :)

Cuban Panini
1 Loaf of Cuban Bread ( French or Italian Bread will work if you can't get cuban)
1 pound sliced cooked ham
1 pound sliced roasted pork
1/2 pound sliced Swiss cheese
Sliced dill pickles
Yellow mustard

Preheat your panini press. Meanwhile,  cut the loaf of bread into quarters and slice each quarter in half lengthwise for the sandwiches. Spread the mustard on the bread. Then make each sandwich by layering the pickles, roasted pork, ham, and cheese. Lay sandwiches in panini press and cook for 2-3 minutes. Slice each sandwich in half diagonally and serve.  Makes four sandwiches.

NOTE-If you don't have a panini press this can also be made on a griddle or skillet pan. The prep is the same but instead of the panini press use a heavy pan on top of the sandwich to flatten it for 2-3 minutes per side. The cheese should be melted and the bread golden brown.
