Update Servings
  • Cuban bread bun or substitute French bread roll (not a baguette) or a Kaiser roll
  • 1 roasted pork shredded - boneless center loin is suggested
  • 1/2 baked ham - a mild and sweet flavored ham
  • 1/4 Swiss cheese
  • dill pickle slices
  • 3 butter
  • Cut ham into thin slices. Cut a dill pickle into narrow slices, or use pre-cut slices Cut cheese into thin slices
  • Slice bread bun in half lengthwise, or if using a French bread roll, cut lengthwise to make a 6 inch length.  Lightly butter inside of each bread slice. On buttered side, layer ingredients starting with the pickles, then the roast pork, ham (1 to 2 slices), and the cheese on top.
  • Pre-heat sandwich grill or a griddle pan large enough to hold 1 or 2 sandwiches. Spray cooking oil on grill or pan surfaces.  Place sandwich(es) in grill or pan and flatten sandwich by either closing grill lid, or if using an open pan, place a meat press, such as a bacon press, over top of sandwich. A heavy object such as a brick wrapped in tin foil can be used to compress the bread, meat, and cheese.
  • Grill sandwiches 2 to 3 minutes per side, removing when cheese melts and outsides of bread are golden brown.
  • Slice sandwiches in half and serve

"I had quite a bit of pork roast left from this weekend so I was looking for something different to make with it. I found this recipe and tried it last night. I just used honey baked ham from the deli and French bread for it. I grilled it on our George Foreman grill and they were fantastic. We all loved these sandwiches. A great way to use up leftover pork roast."
