Cuban Panini

I LOVE Cuban sandwiches!

1 Loaf of Cuban bread, can't find it you can use Italian or French (not a baguette)
yellow mustard
dill pickle slices (the long ways)
1/2 lb Swiss cheese, thinly sliced (make sure you get a good aged cheese)
3/4 lb ham, thinly sliced
1/2 lb pork roast, thinly sliced (Boar's Head makes a great roast pork deli meat)
1/3 lb Genoa salami, thinly sliced
2 tbs unsalted butter

Preheat panini press.

Cut bread in half lengthwise.

Spread inside top and bottom with mustard and mayonnaise.

On bottom half, layer pickle slices, Swiss cheese, ham, roast pork and salami.

Cover with top half of bread.

Cut the loaf into 4 equal portions.

Lightly butter top and bottom of each sandwich and press on the grill until the bread is crusty and browned and the cheese is melted.

Slice each sandwich into 2 or 3 pieces.

If you don't have a panini press, you can use a George Foreman Grill or a heavy skillet. If you use a skillet make sure you press the sandwich down hard.

We had this with salad and fruit salad. It was a great summer meal.
